WHO COMPETES WITH OUR FLOOR MUSIC
The floor routine music we sell is used by USAG gymnasts who compete in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (the optional levels) and Rhythmic Gymnastics (all levels). Our gymnastics music is competed internationally, too, and meets all criteria set forth by the FIG. Additionally, gymnasts who compete in organizations such as AAU, YMCA, NFHS as well as other similar programs have all successfully used our floor music.
REGULAR AND SHORT VERSIONS
Gymnastics floor music from Musical Designs conforms to the timing requirements set forth by USAG for both Women's Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics: none of our music is longer than 1:30. The music we refer to as regular length falls into a range of 1:15–1:30, depending on the individual song.
Short versions are exactly that: shorter version of their regular length counterparts. Short versions are available for many of our regular length songs; in fact, some songs even have multiple short versions! At the present time, short versions from Musical Designs are available in lengths ranging from 0:44–1:24.
