Q: What is Coffs Physie & Dance?
A: Coffs Physie & Dance are a part of the Australian Physie and Dance Association (APDA).
Our teachers are committed to guiding all our girls to get the knowledge, skills, confidence and passion to succeed in their chosen art, whether it is in dance, physie or both. Regardless of whether they wish to compete at the top level, do it for exercise or purely for fun, we will help them to achieve their goals. Physie is fun. It’s social. It promotes fitness and a general sense of well-being, and self-worth. Coffs Physie & Dance is a wonderful way to meet people and make everlasting friendships. We encourage healthy living and sportsmanship and invite you to become a "physie sister" and an important part of our "physie family
