My daughter has been dancing with Motion Control Dance now for 8 years, starting as a very young and full of beans little girl. Dance classes started on a Saturday morning with end of term shows and they also took part in other larger shows in the Vale. Over the years under the teachers supervision my daughter has moved up classes, taken part in a variety of shows and displays and finally securing a place in a competing team. Being part of this team has now opened doors to her and the other children allowing them the opportunity to travel all over to show off their talent.
My daughter struggles academically but in dance she has found something she loves and is good at. It surprises me that her school teachers claim she lacks confidence, as with dance she certainly doesn’t. Dancing with Motion Control Dance has meant that not only can she dance but it has helped her to make friends, helped with her concentration, work as part of a team, and has helped boost her confidence.
As a mum I can honestly say it was the best decision I made is signing up with Motion Control Dance for my daughters dance classes.
I have learnt many things from dancing with Motion Control Dance over the last 9 years. I've experienced opportunities from auditions to competitions. Being one of Motion Control Dance's many students I have gained skills and knowledge in dance that is helping me with my college course in performing arts as it has showed me how to express myself. MCD has caring dance teachers that has taught me to strive in what I want to do, to be successful and has truly helped me to gain confidence within myself. With Emma's help I was able to achieve an A* grade in my GCSE dance exam and gain lifetime friends. Motion Control Dance makes everyone feel welcome.
The child I work with absolutely loves her weekly dance classes , its given her confidence in making friends and a the ability to express her creativeness in a nurturing atmosphere. She is now more confident and is revelling in stage performances. It's fantastic to see her confidence soaring being part of a team.
My son since attending breakdance classes has gained so much confidence in himself. He says the teachers and his new friends are cool and he loves it.
What is so special about this group is the founder Emma Mallam. She started the group with a simple idea and now has a team of dance teachers who make a massive difference to lives in our community. My child is able bodied , dancing with children and adults with disabilities including those with cerebral palsy, downs syndrome and brain damage.
All these dancers know what it’s like to have a good quality of life – being part of something that makes their abilities shine through and makes them happy and their family proud no matter what their challenges are. I’m proud that my boy is integrated at such a young age and is part of the dance group in the boy breakers section.
My son Leo was born with a brain damage and has no peripheral vision & other sight problems. Since joining the Boy Breakers group, it has opened up a whole new world for him. Leo loves Callum the tutor and wants to be just like him when he grows up! When Callum invited him into a "dance off" at the Bay competition, he did so well and felt like one of the 'Big Boys'! He thinks its cool when Emma tells him to 'give attitude'.......... so he does! Leo loves performing and our family was so proud of him at the Summer Show, giving it his all and being part of his group. He now dances everywhere......supermarket aisles, down the street, family gatherings etc etc. As Leo says in his own words:- "Dancing is my life"!! Thank you Emma and all your lovely team. xx
Give it a go!
