Motion Control Dance

Enrich Your Life Through Movement

Inclusive Community Dance Experiences

From the moment you walk through the Motion Control Dance Studio door you will feel cherished and a part of our community dance family.

As a result our dancers flourish with the combination of teachers who are passionate about watching you or your child blossom.

Above all we create a positive and enjoyable dance experience for everyone.   We focus on developing confidence and self esteem to overcome and break down barriers.  Resulting in the achievement of new skills that will broaden horizons.

For over 20 years our organisation has showcased the achievements and joy of our wonderful students.  In addition to delivering fantastic dance projects that benefit the wider community.

  • This is a wonderful organisation that does not discriminate in its belief that everyone deserves the ‘chance to dance.’

    Jo Clemo Parent
  • Motion Control Dance classes for children with special needs are inspirational.   My daughter would NEVER take part in her school performances but with Motion Control Dance's help she is confident enough to perform on stage in front of 100s of people now!  The work Motion Control Dance teachers do doesn't just make young people into dancers, its a great boost for their self esteem and a fantastic way of helping them develop their social skills.

    David Morrison Parent
  • "Well done to all concerned. You are presenting dance as it should be, for all, and it’s ‘ how you feel’ rather than ‘how you look’. Now an 81 year old trained by Laban with a wonderful career including writing the first degree I can only applaud your work"
