Our Classes

Our lessons are held at Kurwongbah State School Hall, Eacham Road, Petrie.

At Strathpine we pride ourselves in our low cost classes and inexpensive costumes. Best of all we require NO expensive dance shoes! One coloured leotard and one black leotard is all that is required per year and we offer secondhand leotards in April and new leotards in May.

Kindy Classes

Our ‘Tiny-Tots’ classes are available for 3-4 years. Performed to nursery rhyme style songs, our age-appropriate dances offer stimulating and challenging choreography for your little performer. These classes are the perfect stepping stone into the junior age groups!

Junior and Intermediate Classes

Introducing the BJP official syllabus, these classes include the 5-16 years who perform in friendly and low-cost competitions. The syllabus aims to develop basic dance and ballet knowledge, improve fitness, co-ordination and flexibility as well as teaching the girls good posture and presentation skills. By half-way through the year the students will have learnt seven different routines including a aerobic warm up, basic ballet, strength building floor routines and jazz dance.

Senior Classes

Aimed at students 17 years and above, the girls learn, perfect and perform the BJP official syllabus and aim for national level titles. As well as the core of physie such as jazz, aerobics and ballet, the senior syllabus introduces entertaining and challenging hip-hop, contemporary and theatrical routines.

Ladies Classes

Our ladies classes ensure an entertaining and fun time! Aimed at maintaining and improving fitness and flexibility, these classes are excellent for beginners through to experienced physie ladies. At Strathpine we offer beginner classes for all the ladies to learn the basics together as well as our open classes. With a variety of routines to tone and shape your body, physie is a fantastic alternative to expensive gym memberships!
