Our Club

Gungahlin Physie & Dance was launched in 2012 and we are a proud foundation club of the Australian Physie and Dance Association (APDA), Australia's most progressive physie and dance movement. 2017 is our club's sixth year of operation and we continue to grow our membership and the quality of our dancers each year. We are passionate about physie and our club and we enjoy seeing our members passion and love for physie grow each year.

Our club prides itself on providing a fun, safe and engaging environment to learn physie and dance. We encourage participation and giving it a go at every chance and have high expectations of excellent sportsmanship from all members and their families. Physie is a sport you can do for life. We hope that by joining Gungahlin Physie and Dance, our members take their first step in a lifetime association with physie.

Emma has been around Physie for many years. Emma started physie at the tender age of 4 in Sydney after family friends invited her along. Her addiction to physie was inevitable and over the years, she has competed in 3 types of physie in both Sydney and Canberra. Emma teaches the 5 - 12 years and the Beginner, Novice and Intermediate Ladies classes and team teaches the Open Ladies class.

Emma joined the Gungahlin Physie teaching team in 2015 and was the teacher of our first Junior National FInalists. She loves watching the girls learn and improve each and every week and she always has a smile and laugh during class.

Outside of Physie Emma is a school teacher in Gungahlin, currently teaching Year 4. She enjoys camping and spending time with family and friends when she is not at the studio working up a sweat.

Lisa started physie as a 4 year old in Brisbane, and apart from a year off to join a school rhythmic gymnastics team, has been participating as a student and occasional teacher ever since.

Lisa joined Gungahlin Physie & Dance in 2012, and was a member of the winning under 33 ladies team in 2012, and a National Grand Finalist in the open ladies 30-35 years section in 2013, 2014, 2015 and placed 4th in this section in 2016! A huge achievement  that has seen Lisa develop a fan club from our junior girls who all look up to her. Lisa is an outstanding physie girl who also runs our Sunday stretch classes for our students.

Lisa will be teaching the 13-15 years class with Lauren in 2017 and team teaching the Open Ladies.

In her spare time, Lisa is a senior lawyer in the public service.

Lauren’s physie career was set well before she took her first steps, with her mum competing in teams whilst pregnant and then growing up copying her older sister's work at the back of the class in Newcastle. Since then, she has competed at a national and championship level in both individual and team competitions and enjoys the challenge of perfecting the routines and working as a team each year. Lauren is a very accomplished physie girl having made the national finals on a number of occasions and being crowned National Champion as a 6 year old. 

Lauren joined the Gungahlin club as an inaugural member after moving to Canberra in 2011 and was proud to be a part of the winning under 33’s ladies team. Lauren teaches our Gungahlin 13 - 15 years class and team teaches the Open Ladies.
