The phrase joi de vivre, in French literally translates to “joy of living” but it means much more than that – it suggests a delight in being alive and a healthy enjoyment of life.  The expression sums up the wonderful feeling of our 2012 Easter Show performance, which all 275 performers embraced with such enthusiasm.

The BJP girls gathered together, learnt together, performed together and, most importantly, had fun together.  They conquered the Sydney Easter Show arena with record audience numbers!

This has become an iconic event for all of us at BJP.  Many years ago we had the “Angels” at the Darling Harbour Christmas Pageant.  Now the Easter Show is the place where even more BJP girls can perform en masse and show the world what physie girls can do.  And each year, our show gets bigger and better.

This year Emma Sadd gave us great vision and choreography and wonderfully infectious music.  The teachers involved showed initiative and professionalism and made the experience a great one for all. The girls used their skills and vibrant spirit to portray what BJP physie means:  the skill of dynamic movement, crossing both age and cultural barriers and the infectious fun of just having a go!

The outcome – we want to do it all again and we want to include even more women and girls from our fabulous BJP physie family. In 2013, let’s break our record yet again and shoot for more than 300 performers…

Spread the word.
