Rythmic and artistic gymnastics are two totally different sports.

Rythmic gymnastics - is a dance like form of gymnastics. Rhythmic gymnasts perform a floor rouinte using a hand apparatus (ball, ribbon, hoop, rope or clubs). It is performed to music and requires good flexibility. There is no tumbling although some acrobatics moves are used.

Artistic gymnastics - Involves vault, uneven bars, beam and floor for women and for me floor, pommell horse, rings, vault, parrallel bars and high bar.

When people say 'gym' or 'gymnastics' they are often talking about artistic gymnastics. But gymnastics is in fact a word that covers all the different gymsports. There are several different types of gymnastics and they include.

Women's artistic gymnaastics - Consisting of vault, uneven bars, beam, and floor. Propably the most popular type of gymnastics.

Men's artistic gymnastics - Vault, floor, rings, high bar, parrallel bars and pommell horse.

Rhythmic gymnastics - floor routines performed with hand apparatus (ball, ribbon, hoop, rope, clubs). Very balletic and showing lots of flexibility.

Sports acrobatics - done in pairs or small groups of two or three (the team sport of gymnastics). ACrobats perform floor routines to music as a group or pair which includes dance, tumbling and balance moves as well as lifts, throws and holds.

Sports aerobics - done to high energy music shoing strength and flexibility. Lots of dance, leaps, jumps, turns and balance moves but no acrobatics or tumbling.

Trampolining - routines of flips and twists performed on a trampoline and also includes duoble mini where trampolinists perform skills on a large mini trampoline.

Power tumbling - done across a 25 metre sprung floor tumblers perform a huge connection of acrobatics, flips and twisting.

General gymnastics - the term that covers other types of gymnastics such as team gymnastics, pre school gymnastics and cheerleading.

The difference between the two is rhtyhmic gymnastics is a sport combined with ballet and artistic gymnastics involves different supply (like a tramopline). Artisitic is much more paid attention to which is a problem now.
