Physie and Dance Age Groups and Skill Levels
Students begin learning the new syllabus each February.
APDA releases the year’s syllabus to teachers at the start of the year and this is then taught to students during class time.The new music and choreography is always exciting and challenging!
It takes a few months to learn the syllabus before perfecting the routines and developing our strength, flexibility, balance and technique.
Students are expected they will undertake weekly ‘homework’ to learn their positions, timing and routines to be ready for the following week’s instruction. All students are to undertake self-stretching prior to and after classes.
APDA releases an instructional DVD to students at the start of Term 2 and is included with the fees.
Ladies have fun at Physie too!
Many of our ladies have no dance background and learn all the basics as the year unfolds.
For some, Physie is a way to get back into dance after been away from it for many years.
Physie is an all-over workout. The syllabus focuses on dance and movement, so is a great cardiovascular workout. It also tones and strengthens muscles, improves balance, coordination and posture. It's a great stress reliever too.
Physie builds core strength and increases flexibility, which can help reduce back pain, and many women who practise while pregnant say it helps with childbirth and recovery.
Ladies group is divided into skill level with beginner, novice, intermediates and opens (over 40s, over 50s, over 60s).
