About Us

Make a Move is a charity founded on the principles of music and movement making people HAPPY! We are driven by our desire to improve the mental-health of all we have the pleasure of taking on a journey. The idea is simple, but it is in the PROCESS where you can see Make a Move’s magic.

How Make a Move works

  • We design and run customised sessions and projects for individuals and groups from the very young to the very old (and all ages in between).
  • We provide people with ways of improving their own lives long after their sessions have ended.
  •  We instil an absolute awareness of the bond between BODY and MIND.
  • We inspire laughter, fun and happiness.  But it is serious stuff – we help to improve people’s mental health.
  • We provide tailor-made solutions to all sorts of people with emotional hurt and mental health issues such as challenging behaviours, dementia and post-natal depression
  • We are often confused with a dance company, but dance is only part of the story and we cannot deny that we do make people feel like dancing.

Creative movement, music, therapeutic dance and talking therapy 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.
