Miss Leonie has almost 40 years of experience in three codes of physie and has achieved finals success in all three codes. She has learnt to be a humble winner, graciousness in defeat as well as resilience and perseverance.

Miss Leonie’s love of physie is compounded by the wonderful life-long friends she has made over the years and enjoys the fun weekly catch-up with good friends. She has three young daughters who also share her passion for physie. She loves that her children will also understand the importance of good female friends and building each other up. Miss Leonie also loves the physical aspect of physie, maintaining her strength and flexibility.

Miss Leonie is excited to be the new Principal of Camden United Physie and Dance in 2022 and will ensure a positive atmosphere in every class, making all girls and ladies feel a sense of belonging and acceptance from the moment they join the club. Miss Leonie teaches our junior classes at CUPAD.

Miss Mikayla started physie when she was just 2 years old and has competed individually and in team competitions ever since! Miss Mikayla joined our club in 2017 and her love for physie and support for our CUPAD community immediately shined bright! Miss Mikayla is a fantastic role model to our members at CUPAD as she reminds our girls and ladies to not only work hard but also to have fun! Alongside Miss Leonie, Miss Mikayla will be teaching our junior classes. She is an asset to our CUPAD team and loves to see what her students can achieve!
