Amellia Tamanaha has enjoyed competing at a national and international level for both BJP Physical Culture and Rhythmic Gymnastics; she has won titles in both sports.  A dancer since age 2, Amellia is trained in classical ballet, jazz and contemporary dance.


Amellia is a Rhythmic Gymnastics coach at The Hills Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre and is currently studying Psychology and Business at the University of New South Wales; she also holds a number of accreditations from Gymnastics Australia, including an Advanced Coaching Certificate.


Millie believes she can thank her years of Physie for teaching her many important life lessons and she is excited to be teaching a whole new generation of girls the grace, strength and confidence she learnt from Physie.  Millie and the team at North Shore Physie are strong supporters of BJP’s motto, empowering girls for life.

Simone is a life long Physie enthusiast, she started Physie as a 6 year old; a very long time ago! She now uses her organisational skills to keep the North Shore Physie stars on their (pointed) toes and lots and lots of balls in the air....she’s also in charge of picking up the balls that don’t stay in the air.
