Project by Move Momentum

We did it
On 22nd April 2021 we successfully raised £9,601 ( + est. £450.75 Gift Aid ) with 77 supporters in 51 days

We need your to help keep our Liberate Dance (wheelchair dance) and our GEMS (over 65s dance) classes running this year.

 New stretch target

It will help keep classes running for the rest of the year and we will use some of the money to launch a new Gems class in Winchester.


Who are we?

Move Momentum is a local charity based in Winchester that aims to make dance accessible to everyone. We provide weekly dance classes for young people, older adults and people with disabilities.

We believe that dance is for everyone. We strive to make this a reality. 

At Move Momentum, our mission is to provide accessible, inclusive and affordable dance classes. We know dance changes people’s lives because we witness it first-hand and we believe that everyone should have access to a high-quality dance education enabling them to improve mental and physical well-being and enrich their quality of life.


Why we need your help?

We have yet to secure funding to keep our Gems and Liberate Dance classes running this year. We need your support so that we don't have to stop running these classes. These classes are vital to our students mental and physical well-being and have been a lifeline during these challenging times. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic, many of our participants have had to shield and our virtual classes have provided a much needed social and creative outlet during these difficult times. Unfortunately, as many have, we've faced a loss of income and have struggled to secure funding to keep our classes running.

Our students rely on the community and support system that we have built. It has been more important than ever in these difficult times to ensure that people are not alone. 


How will the money be used?

The money will be used to keep our GEMS and Liberate Dance classes running. £6000 will enable us to keep all our classes running until July 2021.

Our classes are so important to all who attend and are so much more than just a dance class, they are a support network, a community and a place to be themselves and have fun.



Gems is a friendly and relaxed dance class for over 65s focusing on reducing loneliness and social isolation and developing physical strength and mental well-being. Our Gems class includes a mixture of seated and standing movement with a focus on participants going at their own pace, being creative, expressing yourself and having fun. 


                                 Liberate Dance

Liberate Dance is the UK's first exclusively wheelchair-based dance company. At Liberate Dance we believe in celebrating the freedom of movement a wheelchair brings to people with disabilities. We encourage our dancers to celebrate their disabilities and view them as something to be proud of and embrace. Liberate Dance has provided an opportunity for people with disabilities to keep fit and do things they did not think was possible. 



Our Winchester Street Dance Academies are for young people aged 11-16 and are based in Stanmore and Winnall in Winchester. We provide a safe place where young people can socialise, learn, develop and achieve. At our academies, young people learn authentic street dance styles and have the opportunity to take part in performances and other community events. The Academies aim to enable young people and provide them with life skills that go beyond a weekly dance class.
