BJP Physie has always been the perfect place for preschool girls to learn the first basics of dancing. Co-ordination, rhythm, balance, fitness, strength and discipline are all key elements of the classes. Of course, the kids don’t know they’re getting all this – they’re just busy dancing, singing and generally having lots of fun!
These photos were taken at the Freshwater Physie club’s recent mini-concert, held to showcase what Preschoolers had learned in the first 2 terms. The parents loved it and it was a fantastic way for the girls to practice in front of an audience in a fun environment. For most it was their first time in front of an audience and it gave them such a sense of achievement. Their teacher Justine said “Wow did they come to class on Monday with a new sense of confidence!” Afterwards families stayed and shared a plate and drinks and the children played. This is the kind of event that builds that unique friendship in physie clubs, not just among the kids but amongst their parents too. It’s wonderful to see everyone celebrating every child’s achievements, not just their own. As Justine says “it was a special day and I’m still on a bit of a high from it!”

Flexibility and strength are so important to physie girls. Dancing requires not just flexibility but body control, which comes from muscle strength. The earlier a physie girl starts to stretch and do strengthening exercises, and learns to do them the right way, the better dancer she will be when she grows up.
Flexibility is a life-long pursuit and it’s essential to a dancer’s repertoire. You’re never too young to start and it can be fun! CLick on ‘read more’ to see how…
