This article offers insights from 15-year-old Ellie on calisthenics. According to Ellie, calisthenics is a combination of gymnastics, ballet, contemporary, staging, acting, rods and marching. She says dancing and calisthenics are similar but calisthenics focuses on different skills, as well as continuous learning on how to improve them. Her shoulder subluxation hurts sometimes but it is not too dangerous, Ellie claims. She notes that the best thing about teaching the sport is sharing her knowledge and love of it with the younger children.
