Under the guidance of teacher Rebecca Boag of Coleambally, 25 students ranging from tiny tots to ladies have been mastering the art of basic ballet and modern dance, and exercises.
Students learn a new syllabus every year, and compete in local competitions. The next club competition will be on September 19.
Rebecca runs classes for tiny tots (from 3 years) at 4.30pm, 5 to 8 years old at 5pm, 9 to 12 years at 5.45pm, and ladies at 6.30pm.
Two teams (11 and 12 years and ladies) will be entering a Sydney competition in November.
The Physie group is a not for profit organisation, run for the enjoyment and wellbeing of the members.
They are seeking donations for raffle prizes, or sponsors who would help support the girls with costs associated with getting the two teams to Sydney in November.
More information on the group can be accessed at www.epphysie.com.au, or call Rebecca on (02) 6954 8572.
