What is Physie?
Physie (BjP Physical Culture) is a fusion of dance styles such as jazz, ballet, hip hop, contemporary, aerobic dance and even yoga! Physie is designed to increase strength, fitness and flexibility. The innovative choreography changes annually and is designed for maximum variety and fun. Emma Sadd, Figtree’s Principal Teacher, is part of the Australian BJP Choreography team.
Physie's motto (since 1892) has been Mens Sana In Corpore Sano – A healthy mind in a healthy body. Physie aims to improve the health of Australian girls and women by promoting physical fitness and total wellbeing.
Physie classes and competitions are grouped by age. Physie offers girls the chance to get fit, make life long friendships, and have lots of fun! Being part of a Physie team encourages a lifelong love of exercise and increases confidence and self-esteem. Physie girls can also compete for individual success - whether this be a personal goal or a national title!
BJP Physie provides a fun, affordable, team and individual sport that encourages all girls and women to participate.
