Welcome

We are a proud foundation club of the Australian Physie & Dance Association (APDA) offering the most progressive and fun physie and dance syllabus to girls from 3 years of age and women of all ages and experience in Canberra.

Come and experience physie and dance where you will learn ballet, jazz, contemporary, lyrical and pilates based routines to modern music in our purpose built physie studio in Mitchell, Canberra. Physie is the variety dance sport with so many styles taught in the one class, our dancers develop skills across multiple genres and don't need to attend multiple classes to learn different styles. 

We love what we do and would love to share our passion for this exciting dance sport with you and your family!

2019 Enrolments

Enrolments for 2019 are now being taken. To check availability or to go on our waiting list, please email us with your daughter's name and date of birth and we can advise if we have places available. Your age for physie is determined as at 31 August - for example if your daughter turns 6 on 1 September, she is in the 5 years this year, but if she turns 6 on 31 August she is in the 6 years. 

Places are offered to those who are on our waiting lists so the best idea is to email us to get on the waiting list. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available. Please note, we do not take any enrolments for girls aged 5 and above after Term 2 as the year has progressed too far for new students.

Our 2019 registration day will be held from 10.30am - 12.30pm on Sunday 3 February 2019 at our studio in Mitchell. If you are interested in joining us, please come along, meet the teachers, tour the studio and receive info on how to enrol. It is preferable that you contact us via email before attending rego day to ensure we have a place available for you.

 

APDA Tiny Tots

We offer the fun introductory APDA Tiny Tots syllabus for girls aged 3 and 4 years. The syllabus for our tiny tots is focused on introducing the basics of ballet, jazz and other dance genres in a fun and engaging environment. Our tiny tots use lots of props to learn how to move to music, basic dance positions and learn how to perform. Parents are welcome to watch classes from our studio seating to provide extra confidence to the smallest dancers to come and join in the fun. No ballet shoes are required. We welcome girls to our Tiny Tots program across the whole year.

2018 In Summary

2018 was without a doubt a history making year for our club with the best individual results in our 7 year history. The outstanding results for our dancers is testament to the dedication of our teachers and members over many years to deliver quality and continually improve. We achieved 5 national places in 2018 and a further 3 making the top 14 in Australia and over 15 making it to the national final events. We congratulate Tash (5th place 5 years), Aria (4th place 7 years), Sam (2nd place 13 - 15 year novice), Erica (4th place Beginner Ladies) and Cassie (4th place Novice Ladies) on achieving such fantastic results. You have inspired the entire club with your dedication and efforts. 

In addition to individual competitions, we had 12 teams represent the club at the various APDA teams events, we attended two interclubs and ran our third Physie Camp in the July holidays for girls in the 9 years and above. Our club spirit was on display at all events and the friendships between the girls and ladies that continue to develop are a highlight. 

At our end of year presentation we very proudly acknowledged 6 girls who have been members of the club for 5 years. In 5 years we have seen them grow into talented and proud Gungahlin Physie and Dance girls and we look forward to awarding them their 10 year badges in 2023.

Our Club

Gungahlin Physie & Dance was launched in 2012 and we are a proud foundation club of the Australian Physie and Dance Association (APDA), Australia's most progressive physie and dance movement. 2019 is our club's eigth year of operation and we continue to grow our membership and the quality of our dancers each year. We are passionate about physie and our club and we enjoy seeing our members passion and love for physie grow each year.

Being a member of our club extends beyond your class each week and makes you a part of our physie family. In addition to classes and competitions, we run a yearly camp for our girls aged 9 and above where we go away for 4 days to practice but also build our friendships, challenge ourselves and learn about being a great all-round physie girl. Camp is the highlight for many girls plus the teachers and helpers who come along! We also run discos, cake stalls, picnics and other social events to further build the community within the club. We have a team of experienced physie mums (no crazy dance mums allowed!) who are here to assist all new families with learning how physie works and how your daughter can get the most out of it. 

Our club prides itself on providing a fun, safe and engaging environment to learn physie and dance. We encourage participation and giving it a go at every chance and have very high expectations of excellent sportsmanship from all members and their families. We cheer loudly and proudly for every member of Gungahlin and expect all members to be supportive and encourage all girls and ladies on the floor. Physie is a sport you can do for life and we hope that by joining Gungahlin Physie and Dance, our members take their first step in a lifetime association with physie.
