Nepean Physie had a memorable 2020 for all the right reasons

The physical culture movement has been a mainstay in Australia for more than 127 years, combining dance and exercise.

According to Nepean Physie teacher Kim Annesley, the activity has time and again proven its popularity, even in the face of adversity.

"Through two World Wars, the Great Depression and other times of crisis, Physie has always found a way to keep going," she said. "The COVID pandemic was no exception ... Physie girls and women can't be stopped."

"2020 saw our club and its members face many struggles but we finished the year off with huge smiles."

The Nepean Over 33 Ladies team won the Overall State Cup in the Championship Division at the NSW State Team event, which was held in November.

Members, Ashleigh Hampson, Lauren Perry and Mia Fahy were all awarded NSW State Champions titles in their respective ages groups.

Ms Annesley said that the club had recorded its best annual results in 2020, with 11 state placegetters, 21 state finalists and nine state competitors.

"After such a difficult year of learning routines on zoom and attending outdoor classes it was such an amazing achievement simply to even to be able to hold and attend competitions," she said.

Nepean Physie offers classes at three locations: McGraths Hill, Londonderry and Werrington.
