ABOUT US

Our mission is to empower individuals and communities through dance and the arts.

Our work is inclusive and innovative, reflecting the stories and experiences of people across Calderdale, West Yorkshire.

We were founded by local professional dance artist Sam McCormick in 2019. Sam started Welland, which is now an ongoing wellbeing programme in Elland, and has provided a range of other innovative dance and wellbeing opportunities in the area. The success of these projects encouraged her to develop her ideas further, and Curious Motion was born!

We provide a range of creative projects and programmes, from weekly dance classes to longer term artistic projects, all of which are centred around the communities in which we serve.
