Physical Culture (“Physie”) is a synchronised team-based sport for girls and women. Physie is a movement and dance-based activity that is well-established in the Eastern states of Australia and also in Perth. Geraldton Physie is part of the Lea School of Physical culture which currently has clubs in Inverell, Warialda, Yallaroi, Bingara, Nambucca Head and Bellingen, NSW. Geraldton Physie started in 2016.
Physie involves participants attending a weekly lesson of 45 minutes duration. Each lesson is designed to increase strength, fitness, flexibility and co-ordination, within a highly social and fun environment. A key strength of Physie is its emphasis on developing self-confidence and positive self-esteem for every girl and lady attending.
Over the course of a year, participants learn 4 different routines to modern music of contrasting styles, each with a slightly different focus.
Dance: co-ordination and aerobic fitness
Rhythm and Floor: flexibility and gracefulness
Exercises: accuracy, stretching and strength
Deportment: posture and control.
All classes are held on Tuesday afternoons during school terms 1, 2 and 3.
All classes start on Tuesday 12th February 2019 (see below for Term dates for 2019). The first 2 weeks (Tues 12th and Tues 19th are free Come and Try Days for people who are new to Physie.
