Several days ago I’ve read a post in Livejournal telling about financial problems faced by a school of rhythmic gymnastics in Jerusalem. There are not so many people in Jerusalem who care about sports and yet this gymnastics team regularly wins bunches of medals both at national and international competitions. Nevertheless… who cares? The team is being financially supported mostly by the parents of the team members. “Philip Leon” community council where the school is situated recognizes this acitivity only as just another source of income for the organization. A day before the new season had to start the director of “Philip Leon” community council told the parents that the school will be closed due to unprofitability. Eventually the parents came to agreement with the organization that one more year the gymnastic school will stay at “Philip Leon” but during this year the team must find its way to profitability. How? Nobody cares.

The girls are hard-working and talented. Obviously many of them see their future in elite sport. The possibility to practice is simply crucial for them.

I decided to contribute to the gymnastics school survival by making this photo reportage from one of the rehearsals. This was something on the edge between sport photography and child photography. Hopefully these photographs will help the girls to attract attention of the media and future sponsors.
