Ballina on Richmond Physical Culture Club is still " going" and" growing" strong after 38 years.

Teachers Theresa Atkinson, Gaye McKenna and Rebecca Robbie are thrilled with the number of girls attending Physie in 2016 - "our club has grown to a record number of 75 this year from our Bright Stars - 3 yrs through to ladies of all ages.
Our philosophy is simple "empowering girls and ladies for life", encouraging girls and ladies of all abilities is what PHYSIE is all about and we as teachers pride ourselves in being able to achieve this.

A physie class fuses dance styles of jazz, contemporary, hip hop and aerobic dance in the one lesson. Our innovative choreography is upbeat, modern, fun, and great for all bodies!

Recently at the Far North Coast Zone Championships in Coffs Harbour, the club was thrilled to enter 2 junior teams and 2 Ladies teams with a large number of girl and ladies who also competed in individual championships.

In the team events no places but all team members of 8 girls/ladies perform the syllabus in synchronization together which builds confidence, friendships and above all they have FUN.
