Our Instructors

Our Instructors are a dedicated group of volunteers. 

Prime Movers are always looking for keen and energetic people to become an Instructor. We run Training Courses approximately every 1 or 2 years.

Trainee Instructors are usually required to have been attending classes for 6 months prior to enrolling in the training course.  The course covers music selection and all aspects of the routines. At the completion of the practical component of the course the trainee takes the full class. They are then on Probation for 3 months as a new Instructor. 

Our Patron and Founder is Wenda Packard. Prime Movers was established in 1986 after Wenda completed a course as part of the Ministry of Sport and Recreation’s “Have a Go” program for the over 50’s.

In 2018 Wenda was awarded the prestigious honour of an Order of Australia Medal for her service to aged welfare in Western Australia.
