Twin Cities Rhythmic (TCR) is a rhythmic gymnastics club in the northeast suburban of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Founded and coached by Margarita Mamzina, a former Russian National Team coach, the TCR engages in promoting rhythmic gymnastics - the most beautiful sport in a fun, joyful and friendly learning environment. Our girls are from all kinds of background and age groups. We offer both competition and non-competition programs. While competition is one of the most important parts of our competition team, we believe that rhythmic gymnastics is meant to exercise, entertain and touch the lives of people and gymnasts alike. With the generosities and supports from our parents, the girls proudly call our team - our family!
Congratulations to all the girls for their first competitions of the season "Christmas Cup"! You all did great and we are proud of you!
I want to say a big thank you to all of the parents who helped to prepare and run the meet. It would not have been possible without you. Your support is appreciated.
