Working in Partnership

Working in partnerships with many local organisations in the Vale of Glamorgan is vital for Motion Control Dance.  Providing services and projects to other organisations and agencies in the community help us to enrich lives through movement.

We are a community focused charity that gives people the Chance to Dance by providing inclusive workshops and performances opportunities with positive outcomes.

  • A courageous group of young dance professionals. This ‘experience of joy’ reflected on the children’s faces is not just for a fleeting moment. Emma and her team, work energetically – and sometimes quite sacrificially – round the clock, opening up amazing new horizons for these fortunate youngsters in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, who almost certainly would not have found this life-changing ‘chance to dance’ without their help.

  • Motion Control Dance have very experienced dance teachers and their commitment and passion is evident throughout the sessions.  They are inclusive regardless of ability and they always want to give pupils a chance to decide what style of dance they want to try.  The teachers are able to motivate and enthuse pupils who may not have a keen interest in dance at the start of the term and by the end of the term they are performing on a stage in front of an audience!

  • I have known Emma for a number of years in her capacity as a dance instructor and director of Motion Control Dance. She always manages to get the very best from every child so that they thoroughly enjoy their time working and performing with her.
    Most recently Motion Control Dance led our "Big Barry Dance" with the whole school dancing 'Street Style", the dance was superbly choreographed and including children as young as 4 as well as parents. The teachers motivated every last one to give of their best and thoroughly enjoy the experience! The buzz created has led to a number of parents being trained by Motion Control Dance as instructors and those parents leading our children at the recent Memorial Hall Dance - fantastic!
    Because of Motion Control Dance's enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism, dance is alive and growing at Cadoxton Primary! Diolch!

  • I have linked with Motion Control Dance for over 7 years and they have been providing excellent Disability Dance Sessions as well as inclusive opportunities. The instructors have a huge amount of experience when it comes to providing dance activities for people with impairments. They include everyone and they concentrate on a persons ability rather than disability. The instructors tailor dance moves to suit each individual, this helps create a superb inclusive atmosphere where all the participants thrive. Motion Control Dance also give lots of opportunities for people to perform live in front of audiences in a number of different venues. This is brilliant as it gives people the opportunity to become more confident when it comes to performing. I highly recommend Motion Control Dance and will continue to work with them on a long term basis.

  • 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!
