Club origins go back to the early 1920’s and was named Chelsea Girls Club in March 1923, training hundreds of girls in physical culture.
The girls have competed in local competitions throughout the lifetime of the Club and in 1951 commenced competing at the Royal South Street Competitions at Ballarat which we continue to do to this day.
The Club became incorporated in 1986 and was renamed Chelsea Girl’s Calisthenics Club Inc, evolving in 2002 to Chelsea Calisthenic Club Inc.
After years of training in local community halls we relocated to our current facility that has been renovated and improved to the outstanding sports centre we occupy today.
We are a committee run, not for profit organisation heavily invested in our members wellbeing and dance enjoyment.
We are a competitive team sport with opportunities for solo performances. A wide variety of items ensures new skills are presented. Throughout a Calisthenic career pupils are given the opportunity to sing, learn gymnastic and ballet techniques, marching and apparatus work.
Our coaches are all accredited Level 1 coaches and First aid certified.
