Teaching Team


Genevieve has been teaching Physie for fifteen years and now runs the Doncaster Physical Culture School of Dance. Genevieve has been doing Physie almost all her life, starting in the Tiny Tots at three years of age. Genevieve has competed in team and individual competitions since she was five, and was the first person from the Doncaster Club to make it to the National Senior Finals at the Sydney Opera House. Genevieve loves instilling confidence in her students and passing on her passion for Physie to her students!  


Nadia has always had a passion for dancing and is now going into her sixth year of teaching. Following in her sister’s footsteps she started Physie at only two years old! With Doncaster Physie being her second family, it has always been her aspiration to teach at the club and Nadia now teaches the 9-12 Years and Senior age groups. Nadia has been dancing with the club for over 20 years and has made it to a national level competing individually, and has placed in national team competitions on many occasions. She loves teaching and dancing and most of all she loves her Physie family.


Physie has always been apart of Melissa's life starting from the age of three! Melissa is now going into her 25th year of Physie and 9th year of teaching. Melissa loves the challenge of competition and seeing her students achieve their personal goals. Outside of Physie her passions extend to the creative world of Fashion and Costume Design which is an asset to our Annual Physie Concert.


Caitlin has been dancing since she was six and teaching Physie since 2012. She loves the positive and fun environment that Physie provides while encouraging self development, team work and lifelong friendships. Her Physie achievements include qualifying for Sydney Opera House national competition and competing in many national teams. In 2018, Caitlin graduated from a Science degree at the University of Melbourne and hopes to continue her studies into child psychology.


This is Elise’s fifteenth year with Doncaster School of Physical Culture, in which time she has represented the club individually and in teams. Elise thanks Physie for her ever-growing confidence, fitness and the lifelong friends which she has formed over the years. She loves encouraging and helping the younger girls to develop these same qualities and will continue to do so with the junior classes this year.


Katherine has been an active member of the Doncaster School of Physical Culture for over 20 years, competing in individual and team competitions since she was five. She's been assisting the teaching team for many years and has most recently taken up a co-teaching role. Katherine’s greatest passion is facilitating the development of her students and seeing her students progress and improve into unique individuals. Katherine attributes her academic and industry success to Physie, as it provides opportunities to grow and develop the necessary skills and qualities for individual and team success. 


Michelle has been doing Physie for as long as she can remember, as her Mum used to be a Physie teacher in NSW. Michelle loves the friendship that Physie brings and has been part of the Doncaster Physie Club since 2007. Now a Mum herself of two young active boys, she is looking forward returning in 2019 to teach the Saturday Ladies class!
