About Us

​Heathergene Calisthenics was founded by principal coach Heather Sheekey, 2019 marks the 20th year Heathergene has been operating. 


Heathergene is a not-for-profit club dedicated to the development of calisthenics, a unique Australian artistic sport. Calisthenics involves a combination of dance, singing, ballet, apparatus and gymnastics. It is a team-based sport, with the opportunity for solo performances and skill exams. Calisthenics offers people of all ages a chance to enjoy exercise that builds strength, flexibility, and self-confidence in those who participate.


At Heathergene we promote a friendly, positive and encouraging environment for all of our pupils and families. We have a strong emphasis on fun, fitness and friendships. Our dedicated team of experienced coaches host a range of classes in which pupils of all ages can develop their calisthenics skills.


In 2019 our Tinies, Subies, Juniors, Inters and Senior teams will be competitive, each competing at a couple of local, state and Ballarat competitions in the second half of the year.
