quote about curiosity

At Curious Motion, our mission is to promote belonging, wellbeing, and kindness through artistic experiences that enable people and communities to discover who they are.

Our work is inclusive and innovative, bringing new dance and wellbeing opportunities to people of all ages and backgrounds. 

Established in December 2019, we are based in Calderdale, West Yorkshire – a place of kindness and resilience with a rich and distinct heritage that inspires us every day. We provide a range of projects, including a programme of regular dance and movement classes, digital and online sessions, and our annual wellbeing festival, Welland, which takes place in Elland.
