Funding to freshen up physical culture group

OFFERING dance classes to the local community for 68 years, the Guildford-Greystanes Physical Culture Club has received a $2,000 boost from Cumberland Council to kit out participants in the next Australian Championships in November.

Able to switch now from leotards to performance wear when they take on the 18 most successful physical culture clubs from across the nation, club president Belinda Carr said the new competition uniforms were long overdue.
“We are very grateful to receive this support from the council which will help us to keep going from strength to strength,” she said.
With members ranging from three-year-olds to women in their 50s, Belinda said physical culture was a sport you could continue to do all of your life.
“The different dance routines are all age appropriate and simple to master but become more complex as you develop skills and experience,” she said.
“Benefits include improvements in health, appearance, strength, endurance, flexibility, speed and general fitness as well as greater proficiency in sport-related activities.
“We are always happy to welcome new members and invite anyone to undertake two free trial classes which are held at either Greystanes Community Centre on Monday and Wednesday afternoons or Guildford Community Centre on Saturday mornings.
