What is Physie?
Physie and dance (or physical culture) is a uniquely Australian style of dance that incorporates many different genres of dance into professionally choreographed routines.
The APDA syllabus has a strong focus on teaching correct dance technique across many styles of dance and the variety in the routines means that students never get bored. All routines in the APDA syllabus are choreographed by professional and qualified choreographers ensuring the safety and enjoyment of participants at every age and level.
Routines are set to modern, age appropriate music. With so many different styles of dance in the one class, students learn how to move to different beats and tempo and to develop musicality and performance skills while getting fit and healthy.
Physie routines include a mix of ballet, jazz, contemporary and lyrical components in addition to pilates, yoga, flexibility and general fitness movements to give members skills in dance while developing their fitness and strength.
