What is Physical Culture?
Physical Culture or ‘Physie’ is a modern Australian, competitive sport for women of all ages (every age, every stage). It combines elements of low-impact modern dance, aerobic fitness, and rhythmic gymnastics, choreographed into a number of routines, taught as a yearly syllabus.
The WZ Physical Culture syllabus consists of Marching, Deportment, Relax, Exercise Group, Floor Drill, Toe Drill, and Dance.
Physie is an affordable alternative to tradition dance sport, that all women can enjoy.
Physie is a fantastic form of exercise that lasts almost the entire year! It gives you cardio fitness, increases flexibility, builds strength, and enhances balance and coordination. Coupled with the physical benefits, Physie builds confidence, promotes self-discipline and commitment, while fostering teamwork, friendship, and sportsmanship.
