WeMove began in 2012 as a young women’s dance and discussion group based at Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, North London. Since then it has grown into a multi-faceted programme, and collective of young people and professionals from the fields of dance, performing arts, critical education and therapy.
WeMove’s work is built around the power of dance and youth leadership as vehicles for personal empowerment, community-building and social change.
Its approach foregrounds creativity, friendship, youth leadership and celebration of cultural identity, alongside valuing the voices and perspectives of young people in inner-London – whether these voices be quiet, outspoken or anything in between.
At heart WeMove is also about collaboration, being lucky to work and partner with a number of fantastic local schools, dance companies and other local youth organisations – including the wonderful Haringey Unchained!
After establishing as a Community Interest Company (WeMove Dance C.I.C.) in August 2019, WeMove now offers a variety of projects and services: primarily for secondary schools and colleges, but also more widely in the community.

Come together, dance together, grow together.
