The FIG Gala is the absolute highlight of the World Gymnaestrada and the international world of gymnastics! It is an event organised by the FIG, which shows the variety of Gymnastics for All and this is shown by their interpretation. The 90-minute shows consist of the most creative groups of the World Gymnaestrada 2019 featuring gymnastics, light and music.
In order to select groups for the FIG Gala, all FIG Federation Members have been requested to suggest groups. This was done with films showing the standard and quality of the groups to enable a proper selection. All presentation materials submitted should show the general abilities of the group.
According to the guidelines of the FIG, Siegfried Kernbeiss has been nominated as the coordinator in this area, working together with the two choreographers Marina and Guy Mäder. Unfortunately, not all groups could be accepted as the FIG Gala is a choreographed show. This is the reason why a comprehensive application procedure was exercised, including a defined time schedule for the submission of application material, the sequence of the selection procedure and the information concerning the selected groups.
In February 2018 all the involved Federations were informed in writing about the selection of the groups. All Federations have meanwhile informed their successful groups accordingly. Subsequently a first information letter with details on the further process of the FIG Gala organisation has been sent to the involved Federations.
