About Us

The Australian Physie and Dance Association (APDA) has revolutionised physie as you know it.

APDA was created with the vision to produce a sport that incorporates the fundamentals of physie and the art of dance.

Through the dedication and passion of a network of Physie and dance professionals, a contemporary, relevant and transparent platform for our sport was born, benefiting our student’s fitness, strength and flexibility while embracing the movement of dance.


APDA is an exciting combination of dance and Physie, embracing women and girls of all ages. In a social and physical environment we strive to achieve fitness, mental well-being and to obtain results in our competitions at all levels.


Striving for excellence – Driven by passion


APDA is a fusion of Physie and the art of dance. Members learn 4 – 6 choreographed routines throughout the year, each with its own specific skill-set and focus on movement, musicality, technique, performance, flexibility, cardio and strength – all in one class!

A key driving element of the association is the curriculum we offer to our students. By recruiting a number of professional dance choreographers each year, APDA is able to construct an exciting and progressive routines whilst following a structure to allow skill progression and coordination as the dancers develop in both age and ability.


Our teachers play an integral part in ensuring that students are involved in a fun learning experience. By encouraging progression, they are able to ensure that students perform to the best of their ability; whilst learning fundamental social skills in a friendly environment. Teachers are engaged with APDA throughout the year which provides them with tools and knowledge to help guide students along the way.


APDA offers exciting opportunities to showcase our syllabus. These performances enhance and encourage goal setting and personal achievements. The students are given the choice of participating in team events to represent their club and individual competitions. With these yearly events our members learn essential skills such as team building and sportsmanship. APDA prides itself on national competitions being held in the finest Australian venues such as The Sydney Opera House.


APDA prides itself on the delivery off our unique judging system, created specifically for our sport. Our competition judges consist of both teachers within our association and dance professionals who are well regarded and highly qualified. Both are required to complete and pass a judging course that tests their ability to spot correct technique and execution of each routine. Having qualified judges and a judging system created specifically for our sport we are able to provide the best possible outcome at each competition.
