Australia’s best calisthenics competitors will primp and perform for the next month at the Royal South Street Society Eisteddfod at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The RSSS CommBank Calisthenics will involve 4500 competitors from more than 300 teams from across Australia.

​Participants will perform about 2300 items across 27 days of competition with local representation from Studio Arc, Sovereign and Jayde calisthenics teams.

“Calisthenics is the biggest thing we do, with almost four weeks of competition and plenty of packed houses” said RSSS chief executive Brett Macdonald.

While usually a team sport, there is one solo day which is a highlight, as is the senior championship day and the cutest of cute tinies teams involving performers as young as four.

Calisthenics has traditionally marked the end of the three-month competition of performing arts but is now the penultimate event with the addition of the Arts for All competition in November.
