Our fees include Monday and Wednesday classes for the entire year and any additional team practices required closer to competitions. Fees also cover Club Hall Hire and Insurance, Club Day registration, Competition registration for individual Champion Girl and Teams, Costume Hire for Annual Concert, and Team Leotard Hire.

What do you actually do in class?
After greeting your friends and being welcomed to class by your teacher, you’ll begin with some easy stretching and warming up. Next, you’ll practice your posture by marching or start learning a new dance routine. For the little ones there are always fun games that everyone loves. Each lesson is designed to make sure that you improve a little every single week and caters to the ability level of the group.
How many students are in a class?
There are between 5 to 25 students in each class at Whitehorse Physie, depending on the age group of the students. Larger classes often have an assistant teacher.

What type of Physie competitions are there and do I have to compete?
There are two types of BJP Physie competitions. The first is team-based with 8 girls or ladies in one team performing routines together and the second is called Champion Girl, where girls pursue their individual goals. There are various competitions throughout the year, with club, interclub, regional, state and finally national competitions. Every year, the National Championships are held at the Sydney Opera House where girls from all over Australia compete for the title of Senior Grand Champion. Competitions are completely optional, though they are a great way to build confidence and meet other Physie girls from all over Australia! It’s a wonderful experience designed to encourage girls to become comfortable performing in a safe, positive environment.
Will my daughter have to perform by herself?
No! If your daughter is competing in a team she will be on at the same time as the rest of her team. If your daughter is competing in Champion Girl although she is competing individually, she will be on the floor at the same time as other girls from her age group in her ‘heat’. This means there will usually be 10-15 other girls performing the same routine as your daughter at the same time, and this is often something that our students love because they are competing for themselves, but not alone!
We’d love to invite you or your child to our club for an introductory lesson to see what Physie is all about at Whitehorse Physie.
