WHAT IS PHYSIE?
"PHYSIE is an elegant way of developing not only fitness but also grace, strength and focus in our girls and women"
Physie, short for Physical Culture, is a uniquely Australian form of dance and exercise that has been popular for over a century.
It combines elements of various dance styles, including jazz, ballet, hip hop, contemporary, aerobic dance, yoga, and Pilates, all in one class and choreographed into routines set to music.
Physie is an inclusive sport that is open to girls and women of all ages, body shapes, and abilities.
It is a community-based activity that offers affordable classes and fosters a sense of belonging and support among its members.
Participants can enjoy the fun and social aspects of physie while improving their fitness, coordination, and overall well-being.
Physie is a dance sport for life, and the innovative choreography changes annually to keep things fresh and exciting.
Classes cater to all age groups, from 3-year-olds to over 70s, and are designed to develop not only fitness but also grace, strength, and focus.
The focus at Eastern Suburbs Physie is on individual progress and improvement which creates a positive and supportive atmosphere.
In addition to the dance routines, we also offer technique and conditioning classes for fitness to develop core strength, balance, and mobility. These classes are beneficial for dancers and non-dancers alike and are included in our weekly program.
One of the unique aspects of physie is that it can be a family affair. Grandmothers, mothers, daughters, and granddaughters can all be members of the same physie club and share their involvement in this unique dance sport. Many women have discovered lifelong friendships through physie, with generations of families enjoying the sport together.
Physie promotes positive body image by emphasizing individual progress, self-expression, and creativity. Participants are encouraged to focus on the joy of movement rather than their appearance, which can be a refreshing change from other dance and exercise activities. The supportive and inclusive environment of physie helps women feel confident in their own skin, and the development of a strong and healthy body through participating in classes further reinforces positive body image.
Physie is a unique and fun way to stay active, make friends, and feel confident and strong. Whether you are a seasoned dancer or a complete beginner, there is a place for you in the world of physie.
