"I look forward to each session as it makes me feel so good. There is a very positive atmosphere that allows and encourages one to explore one's sense of self, no pressure, relaxed and comfortable.
It feels wonderful to experience the full wonder of your body through dance, it certainly has benefitted me physically and mentally. It is also good to be part of a group who encourage and support in a safe environment. "

"My daughter had the best time at dance today, she has always absolutely loved dancing but the last year really lost her motivation for it and wanted to quit. She came out absolutely buzzing showing me how she learnt to pop . She cannot wait to come back next week ! Thank you so much for bringing her spark back and her love for dancing again . It makes me so happy to see her happy and loving it !!"

"Just wanted to say thank you for the amazing showcase! From the dancers and costumes to music and routines...you definitely captured that community spirit!
On a personal note, my daughter's confidence has really developed since joining MCD and it really showed on stage! She really enjoyed being part of the show and got really involved in the group dance at the end! Amazing!

"I would like to say how much I enjoy your creative dance sessions. I find the warming up section at the beginning invigorating. It's only a short session of easy movements but brings the body to life. For me having to build up a routine by remembering sets of sequences, stirring the "grey cells" as it were, is truly helping me on a daily basis"

Jane PurdenParticipant

"I really enjoy coming to your Tai Chi class in Rhoose. I am 55 and I was nervous about starting to exercise again. I find your Tai Chi class relaxing, uplifting, improves my posture, balance and mobility. I have made new friends, this has been very important to me as we relocated to South Wales last year. You are a friendly, professional and enthusiastic instructor and have made me feel very welcome and supported, I always leave your session feeling I have exercised but I also feel positive and I look forward to the following weeks session. Many thanks"

""We have loved coming to Motion Control. We are pretty new to Home Education but this is a class we never want to miss each week. My 6-year-old has grown in so much confidence and adores the teacher and all the amazing sessions she creates for us. Motion Control helps us to learn new skills and keep fit. My little one LOVES coming!"

“It is amazing for the residents well being. Most of them have said how they used to love dancing back in the day, but different ailments have prevented this as they have got older, but they are now able to participate."

Annamarie VincentParent

"Motion Control Dance is so much more than a dance class, it's a family. Everyone is part of a family where everyone is built up and given a chance to shine. It's a very positive company."
