Make a Move is founded on the principles of music and movement making people HAPPY! The idea is simple, but it is in the PROCESS where you can see Make a Move's magic!

We design & run customised sessions & projects for disadvantaged & vulnerable groups, from children to adults to those over 65, as well as to businesses & community organisations. We instill an absolute awareness of the bond between BODY & MIND, inspiring laughter, encouraging a sense of fun and promoting happiness.

WE'RE A CHARITY. PLEASE SUPPORT US. DONATE HERE

Our Projects

At Make a Move we work with a wide range of people including children, mums and older people as well as businesses, organisations and the community. Creative movement, music, therapeutic dance and talking therapies are all used in innovative combinations to encourage healing of mind and body. Make a Move’s work is founded and guided by evidence-based research.
