Georgie Alexopoulos among the elite SA calisthenics girls

·

Hand-bejewelled costumes, hours of practice, and fierce competitions—being a caligirl is more than a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.

While many are familiar with “dance moms” from the hit Lifetime reality TV show that made JoJo Siwa famous, “cali moms” are a uniquely Australian phenomenon.

According to The Advertiser, Calisthenics, an elite sport in Australia, is a mix of ballet, gymnastics, and theatre, with young girls performing synchronized routines that include dancing, marching, and singing.

After the Australian Calisthenics Federation canceled the 2024 national competition, former caligirl, now cali mom, and co-founder of the Australian Calisthenics Theatre Company, Carly Aherne, stepped up to produce ‘A Symphony’.

Georgie Alexopoulos was among 63 South Australian caligirls performing at the Festival Theatre, wearing costumes bejewelled with $30,000 worth of gems. This groundbreaking production showcased talent from 12 of the state’s calisthenics clubs.

Georgie Alexopoulos from Windsor Calisthenics Club, has Calisthenics running in her genes as her mum was competing in the sport when she was younger and then coaching. Georgie said calisthenics boosted her confidence and was grateful for the new friends and connections she had made during her 12 year career.
