After what feels like the longest physie year, Gunnedah Physical Culture is relishing being back competing once again.

Physie took 20 girls to the annual New England Zone competition last month, competing alongside other clubs from the region to dance for a chance to compete at the Ladies and Junior Nationals in Homebush. 

For the first time, seniors and ladies were also included in the epic weekend of spectacular performances. 

Several members reached the finals, including Emme Swain placing fourth in the five-year-old section and sisters Bobbie and Darcie Crane coming fourth in the six-year section and third in the eight-

year section respectively, with their mother, Stacie Crane, coming fourth in the novice ladies section.

Gunnedah Physical Culture president, Sam Hubbard, said Stacie competed at the Ladies Nationals on January 29 at Homebush Quaycentre.

“Stacie competed with the best of the best from across the country, making it to the semi-finals with 40 of the top novice ladies in Australia,” Mrs Hubbard said. 

“Bobbie and Darcie then competed at Homebush on February 12.

“This was the first time Bobbie had performed at a national level and she did exceptionally well, as did Darcie who felt right at home on the beautiful Quaycentre floor.

“Although both girls did not make it out of their heats, they have walked away very proud of their efforts and all of the Physie team is also incredibly proud of them.”

Stacie Crane said getting to watch her daughters compete at a national level was the highlight of her physie year.

“Finding a sport that I can not only watch my daughters perform, but also one we can do together has only made our bond grow further,” Mrs Crane said. 

Gunnedah physie encourages mothers and daughter to join and share in the joy and love for Physie. 

Gunnedah physie will be holding its registration day on Saturday, February 26 outside Gunnedah Newsagency from 9:30am-11:30am. Classes start on Tuesday, February 1 for 13-16 years, with seniors classes, ladies and 5-12 years starting from March 7.
