MoveMe is an interactive dance event.
MoveMe is low-pressure, high-fun and unforgettable. Dance class meets flashmob meets party. Learn the moves alongside professional contemporary dancers.
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – can join in. Even if you haven’t danced since nursery, after a few minutes you’ll be moving like you never knew you could.
Be a spectator or join in and take centre stage.
Move yourself to MoveMe!
Move Me generously places the audience at the centre of the action. Using a storytelling method to take the audience on a journey through an irresistible pop track, professional dancers teach people of all ages and abilities a contemporary dance choreography in just 40 minutes.
Once the learning is over the dance floor erupts with shared fun and movement. Contemporary dance meets Flash Mob meets an unforgettable night (or day) out, Move Me has to be seen – and danced – to be believed. Move Me has taken place at festivals, parties and arts venues; indoors and outdoors; by day and by night.
It works as a scheduled, independent event– attracting dance and party enthusiasts – and as a spontaneous happening within a wider programme –engaging people who would never have dreamed of attending a dance event. Wherever and whenever it happens, within minutes Move Me proves itself to be irresistible: turning every spectator into an active, creative participant.
MoveMe aims to use dance to stimulate people’s imaginations and bring them closer to themselves, each other and their surroundings.

I actually love the music of Queen and Plan B, so to dance in a new way with these great songs was very cool
I never thought contemporary dance could be something I’d find interesting, but today Move Me moved me. Fantastic experience
A magical evening
Move Me will show even those who can’t dance (like myself!) that they can!
Whether MoveMe moves people is a pretty obvious yes
Absolutely amazing, had soooo much fun!
I thought it was very engaging, great fun and encouraged people to dance with new partners. Great exercise in a friendly environment.

Move Me cannot happen without the enthusiasm and generosity of our Dance Assistants. Dance Assistants support our professional dancers by offering encouragement to the audience, giving them the confidence to really let their hair down. We are constantly looking for new members of the team.
You don’t need to be a dancer – all you need is a little bit of free time and a desire to move and be part of something unique! You will be taught the dance at a training the evening before or on the event day, and then you will be with the audience, dancing away…
We are currently seeking Dance Assistants in: London, Oxford, Norfolk, Liverpool and Kendal.
If you think it’s for you or if you’d like to know more please get in touch
