About Us

Hunters Hill Physie is a not-for-profit Club that provides exercise and dance classes to girls and ladies of all abilities aged from 3 years and above.

Founded in 2006 the club has grown significantly throughout its 15 year history and, under the guidance of founder Kate O'Sullivan, cemented its position as the #1 EP Physie club, producing multiple championship team trophies and numerous Grand Champions.

 

​In 2020 Kate made the decision to move the club to BJP in order to further extend herself and her members.  Along with her dedicated co-coaches, Kate is excited by the opportunity this new challenge will bring.

Hunters Hill physie members become part of an extended physie family who dance for fun but are encouraged to work hard to achieve their goals in a supportive and nurturing environment, with members being proud of their association.

If you're thinking of joining physie or have any questions we would love to hear from you. Please call Kate on 0412 007 204.

 

Meet the Team

Kate O'Sullivan

Club Founder, Head Coach 

 

Kate formalised her love for Physie in 2006 by opening HHPC, with overall responsibility for the Club, and teaching involvement across all age groups. 

 

Kate is a 3 times Champion Lady, having won State titles in 2012, 2013 and again in 2018 when she came out of retirement to share the Grand stage with her two daughters, who also both won their sections that same year.   Along with producing multiple Grand Champions and winning numerous team championships, it remains her most memorable career highlight to date. 

 

Kate is passionate about her club, and her teaching philosophy revolves around providing a supportive and positive environment for her members that nurtures and promotes personal growth and development. 

Sarah O'Sullivan

Club Dance Teacher / 13-14 Years Teacher 

 

Sarah is an 8 times State Champion, having won EP titles in the 5s, 7s, 8s, 9s, 12s, 13s, 14s, and 15 years. 

 

Sarah's true passion for Physie emerged when she joined BJP and made the National final in her first year of competition.

 

Sarah is excited to be given the opportunity to work with the junior girls to further develop their flair and creativity. 

 

Her bubbly personality and sense of fun, combined with her eye for detail and expertise in dance, make her a valuable addition to the HHPC teaching ranks. 

Sophie Clarke

Sophie started physical culture at the age of 5 and has been competing for the past 14 years both individually and in team events. Sophie has made the State Grand Finals for 9 years, placing each year and winning the title of Grand Champion in 2018 (16 years).

In 2018 Sophie’s passion for physie led her to become a teacher sharing her love of physie with juniors and ladies.

 

Sophie joined Hunters Hill Physical Culture Club as a Senior in 2020 where she thrived in a supportive environment allowing her to demonstrate humility, grace and empathy, which are qualities that underpin her teaching philosophy.

Alana Ward

Tiny Tots Teacher (3-4 year olds) & Junior Age Groups Assistant

Alana is a third generation Physical Culture girl who started BJP at the age of 2. Throughout her time in the sport, Alana has been a member of many winning teams and experienced individual successes including competing as a National Ladies Finalist in 2015.

 

Outside of Physie, Alana is a trained Special Education and PDHPE teacher. She takes on the responsibility of our Tiny Tots class, also assisting with our 5-8 year group.

 

Becoming a teacher has allowed her follow in the footsteps of her Grandmother, sharing her love and passion for the sport with the next generation of physical culture girls.

Lexi Pappas

Tiny Tots Assistant (3-4 year olds)

 

Lexi started Physie as a 4 year old and instantly fell in love with the sport, encouraged and supported by her mum who competes in the ladies section.

 

In 2020, Lexis passion for Physie led her to become an assistant teacher, working with the Tiny Tots. In that same year, she achieved her personal best result, placing 1st in the 12 years (Northern Zone) Junior Champion Girl competition.

 

Lexi’s teaching goal is to share and instil the love she has for Physie and her club in all the girls that she teaches.
