Graceful Solo

In this solo performance, the music, choreography and the performer must combine to create a high standard of Aesthetic Dance Technique. The main benefit for girls competing in the Graceful Competitor section is the achievement of poise, grace and confidence.

Best Type Solo

The Calisthenic Solo is performed by one girl and must contain half dance, half physical work. The routine can evolve into a flowing arrangement and need not be divided into sections.


Calisthenic Duo is performed by a pair of pupils. Similar to a calisthenic solo, it must contain half dance, half physical work, whilst also containing partner work. It involves the pupils interacting with each other, while still ensuring correct technique and uniformity.
Please note: As of the 1st of January 2009, Calisthenics Skills requirements was introduced for all Solos & Duos in South Australia. See your coach for more details.

Although Calisthenics is predominantly a team sport, many members choose to be involved in solo & duo work each year. Solo & Duo work is seperate to the team aspects of Calisthenics, and allows the members to improve their performance skills and technique. Many members thrive on the opportunity to work closely with a coach outside of the team environment.
