Volunteering with Curious Motion is a rewarding and uplifting experience where you can nourish your own wellbeing and play a part in supporting others to live healthy and happy lives.


We are looking for volunteers to support us with the general running and setup/ close of our regular classes and workshops sessions. There is the option to enjoy a free class as part of your volunteering role too if you would like to!

Curious Motion has a fast-growing programme of dance, movement, and creative classes and workshops taking place regularly in Elland in various community venues. We are currently embarking on a three-year project focused on embedding our activities in the area to tackle chronic loneliness and make excellent arts and health activity accessible to more people in the lower valley, and our regular programme is a key part of this.
