Ninety seven percent of our students say that dance classes have -
Helped improve their physical wellbeing
Helped improve their mental wellbeing
Helped improve their quality of life
And helped improve their social support network
At Move Momentum, we’re fully convinced of the benefits of dance - but it’s great to have this feedback from our students, and these are from students from across all the classes we run - from our over 65s GEMS, our youth academy for 9-16 year-olds, and our Liberate wheelchair dancers.
The 97% figure comes from our latest published annual Social Impact Report, for the year 2022. In it we have a few more figures - such as
We delivered 221 classes during 2022
We had 64 students regularly attending classes
And we gave 10 additional special workshops
Of course, we did a lot of other things during the year as well - such as put on a Summer Show, held a Liberate summer camp, and organised a Christmas Fair!
And of course, in 2022, we were still recovering from the Covid pandemic and the restrictions imposed - and so had put a couple of classes on hold. But we’re delighted to announce that these are now relaunching:
Liberate Youth - and with an even younger lower age limit now of 7-13 years, following requests from parents - and is held on Saturdays 12.30-1.30pm at Unit 12, Winnall Valley Road.
And Winnall Academy - street dance for 9-16 year-olds - will restart later this term, at Winnall Primary School, on Tuesdays, 5.30-6.30pm.
You can come and try all our classes for free - just fill in our class enquiry form.
And you can read all about the above figures in this blog in the 2022 Social Impact Report - but we particularly wanted to highlight the 97% figure, because dance at Move Momentum is all about improving physical and mental wellbeing, as well as having fun.
