We are a non-lucrative sports association teaching Danish gymnastics to people of all ages. We have groups from 1 year old to 70 years old (our oldest member).
Since 2008 we have been implementing a non-competitive type of gymnastics (inspired by the Danish style) to develop a culture of physical activity awareness. Through this we are contributing to improve the quality of life for kids, younglings and elderly people.
Our phylosophy is to practice sports for fun, for healty and for life. With this model we are also fighting against obesity (an increasing problem in Costa Rica, specially in children) and sedentary life styles, as well as keeping kids out of trouble, such as drugs and other local issues.
To achieve this we currently have groups of all ages in our facilities, where children, young people and adults come to do gymnastics after school or work. This type of activity accepts everyone, no matter their physical abitities or lack of them. The only requirement is to want to try gymnastics.
Besides our own groups we also give open workshops in schools, universities and different groups and institutions. And to promote this type of gymnastics we also do exhibitions in different sports and cultural activities.
To make activities such as workshops and performances outside our facilities has become very expensive, since we have to pay a truck everytime for transporting of our equipment. This reduces the impact we can generate with our project and limits the amount of children, young people and adults that can benefit from our activities.
To acquire a cargo trailer that we can pull with a regular car, this way we can extend our impact to more schools, more people, more kids, without depending on expensive transportation to achieve our goal of reaching more people.
