Street dance is a term used to cover many different dance styles. At E-Motion Dance we encompass as much as we can and keep it real, teaching the origins/foundations of authentic vocabulary. As street dance did not evolve from the studio, we encourage freedom of expression and movement as well as routines and foundation movements of hip hop, locking, house, waacking and list goes on.
Breakdance, also called B-boying or breakin', involves coordination, style, flexibility and rhythm and is one of the most improvisational dance styles. Our Breakdance sessions are fast paced and athletic and is great for those children with endless energy.
In our Creative Dance class, you will go on a journey of motion. You will learn to move in a creative, freeing and graceful way in the contemporary dance style, whilst transforming your posture and balance and improving your fitness.

Enriching Experiences

E-Motion Dance provides opportunities in education, participation and empowerment through high quality grassroots dance training in authentic styles of street, hip hop, breakin and contemporary dance.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Motion Control Dance is an excellent community dance provision. So lucky to have it my area. My daughter goes and I've seen her progress and grow in confidence. She's even danced on Cbeebies through MCD and met her idol Andy.
    The Co-ordinator Emma is absolutely devoted to getting the best outcomes for her troop from a dancing at local fete to completing in a world dance comp. Whatever the ability or starting point the MCD tutors are patient, friendly and accessible. Its great to see the kids put their gadgets down and move! It's gotta be 5 stars from me!

  • 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

  • “My daughter absolutely loves Motion Control Dance and her team, she has been going since she was 4years old she’s now 9.  She learns something new every session and feels part of a dance family.  I would highly recommend Motion Control Dance Studio.”

    Kelly McCarthy Parent
  • “My daughter’s love for dance developed at a very young age, but was further developed when she joined Motion Control Dance. She’s been a part of this wonderful team for many years now. In that time her confidence has grown in leaps and bounds. Being a part of the competition team has only further developed her confidence and her love for all things dance. So much so that she now volunteers for the group and helps with the little ones. This not only gives her a sense of achievement whilst watching the younger children’s love for dance grow, but it gives her so much pride as she shares what she knows and loves with those just starting out in the dance world. a big thank you to Emma and the other tutors at MCD”
