My life as a Physie girl/lady in 5 words is… passionate, dedicated, fulfilled, challenged, determined.
My earliest Physie memory is…. marching around a small room in a church hall doing the tiny tots Syllabus. There were lots of girls and we had to make more than one square. I also remember doing a fairy performance for the end of year Christmas night and I was dressed in a light blue tutu.
My favourite Physie moment was… when I experienced Grand competition for the first time. Sharing the stage with women that I have admired since I was young and doing a solo march across the stage is a feeling I will never forget.
I’ll never give up Physie because… it’s always been a constant in my life. It’s something that I look forward to when my week starts and provides me with happiness, fitness and satisfaction.
When I’m not doing Physie I’m… working full time as a senior contract administrator in the construction Health sector. Being part of the creation of infrastructure that will benefit so many people is why I love my job. Other than work, I spend a great deal of time with my beautiful pup, Clooney. My partner and I also like to get out into nature and go for hikes.
I’ll always be grateful for… my support crew – all the wonderful people in my life that support and encourage me throughout my physie performances and activities.
My favourite routine…. has always been the relaxed (as a junior) and the contemporary (as a senior). I love being able to express a story through dance and the contemporary choreography allows this through technique and expression, musicality and movement. It also has balletic movements which I adore, as I loved doing ballet when I was younger.
My favourite thing about performing is…. knowing that I am doing something I love. To me performing is the opportunity to make the audience feel emotion through movement and expression and being able to form a connection with them.
