Whether it’s towards Welsh Baccalaureate, DoE or University placement, Motion Control Dance offers many volunteering opportunities for young people. This helps young people to gain experience, knowledge and empowerment who want to work in the community dance. Dance Leaders achieve their 50, 100 and 200 hours certificates by assisting our dance staff and helping supervise children at events.
Volunteering opportunities gives you the chance to make a difference to people’s lives and use your skills and experience to help your local community. Motion Control Dance also delivers the Sports Leaders UK Dance Leadership Level 1 & 2 courses to students who have an interest in teaching community dance.

“I have been a dance leader for Motion Control Dance for awhile now and have completed my 100 hours Star Award. I love working with the under 6s classes every Saturday as it makes me feel like I have something to look forward to. I feel like a cherished part of the team at Motion Control Dance as they give me opportunities and experiences that I enjoy.”

Billie CaytonDance Leader
“Volunteering and dancing with Motion Control has enabled me to gain so many new skills and meet lots of new people. I volunteered with the disability class which was great fun and took part in various shows with them. I have gained skills such as leadership and team work as I can now lead a dance class confidently to different age groups. I have also gained many friends which I have kept in contact with over the years. Even though I have not continued to pursue dance as my future career, having the hours under my belt has allowed me to gain a place at university and also volunteer at local youth clubs. I am very grateful to Motion Control Dance for helping me grow as a person and for helping reach my goals.”
“"Being a dance leader is amazing because it gives us opportunities we wouldn't get anywhere else. From being a dance leader I have developed my communication skills and help with different ages and abilities of children. I don't know where I would be without dance and being a dance leader"”
