Today we’d like to introduce you to Ralitsa Kalmukova.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I was a gymnast in my native country Bulgaria since the age of 4. When I came to the USA rhythmic gymnastics was not very popular. I started teaching classes to introduce my sport to the community. My classes grew and I eventually opened the school as a non-profit program to train young girls and bring them to a high level. It has been a very challenging journey, but finally this year we were able to open our own facility. Our school is proud to be home of many National Region and State champions
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
We need high ceilings and it has been very difficult to train. The girls have been traveling to many different location to prepare for competitions. Finally, this year, we were able to find our own space and home. We are still waiting for the town of Burlington to approve our second location building for our students in that area.
North East Rhythmics School of Gymnastics and Dance – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We are the only rhythmic gymnastics program north of Boston. We teach rhythmic gymnastics and contemporary dance. We have competitive and recreational programs. We help our students to grow as strong independent individuals, to have discipline, work hard as individuals and in a team and don’t give up easy.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
My students winning National Championship titles year after year.
