Moree Physie Club recently hosted a full day workshop, inviting all the clubs in the New England zone for a packed day of physie and fun. Girls came from Gunnedah, Coonabarabran, Tamworth, Armidale and of course Moree. Alicia and Shannon Reinhard of Toongabbie club went up to put the girls through their paces. The 5-8 years in the morning worked on positions, strength, technique, dance and marching. In the afternoon, the 9 years up to Seniors had a lesson on hip hop and lyrical dance and, importantly, how to incorporate that into their physie routines. “The girls had the best time” said teacher Samantha. “They were amazed at how much there is to learn about dancing and about physie technique. They’ve come back to class full of new energy and they keep remembering things they’ve learned, which is fantastic! Even the little ones keep saying ‘piece of cake’ and are remembering to turn their toes out.”

They say that “the family that plays together, stays together” and that goes for physie clubs too! Club loyalty is one of the most special things about physie – it’s more than just turning up for class each week, it’s supporting your friends in the club and doing fun stuff together.
Here’s just some examples: In Bonny Hills, one girl had a broken arm so the whole class did the work with one arm! Now that’s support. In Bayside, the physie gang had a picnic by the bay. And in Brisbane Waters, the kids surprised the locals with a flash mob of physie dancing.
When I was a child, the thing I remember most is doing physie on a moving float down the main street of Grafton at the Jacaranda Festival! Our club went up from Sydney to support the brand new physie club that had opened in Grafton – that’s about 35 years ago and I remember it like yesterday! It’s these experiences where the club gets together and does something ‘outside the box’ that are so memorable and so much fun.

Camden Haven Physie Club was recently the successful recipient of a local community grant which will be used to help members with the cost of travelling to Sydney to compete. And they look pretty happy about it – albeit upsidedown! So where is Camden Haven? It has to be one of the most beautiful spots on the entire coast of NSW – so if you haven’t been there, drop in for a holiday (you won’t regret it!) and you could even catch a physie class while you’re there.
