‘GirlForce’ is all about

empowering young women

Do you have a

daughter, niece,

neighbor or friend

in need of an energy

or confidence

boost? Jazzercise

at Narrabeen has

launched an initiative

to support the growth

and development of

young women – in

February they’re

offering a month of

free classes for girls aged

16-21.

Dubbed GirlForce, the

program aims to empower

young women by giving them

a place to get fit, learn healthy

habits, and find a connection

within their community.

“Self-esteem, body image

and mental health issues

affect young and older women

in society and exercise plays

a key role in helping and

supporting girls as they

grow up and mature,” said

Jazzercise instructor Nicola

MacKay.

She said GirlForce would

encourage teens and

university-aged women to join

the movement and learn to

“dance their own path.”

“If they start young they

will have a greater chance of

staying fit for life,”

said Nicola. “As a mum

of two young girls, I

am already becoming

aware that females

confront unique

challenges.

“We know what

physical activity does

for us. We hope that

offering girls a safe

place for them to get

fit can help…so they

can become strong women.”

Girls who are interested in

joining the GirlForce initiative

can present this article

anytime in February 2017 to

commence one month of free

classes.
