Curious Motion CIC is a social enterprise that provides dance and arts based classes, workshops, and projects in communities, with a focus on mental health and overall wellbeing. We are a Community Interest Company, registered in England and Wales and our company number is 12356173. Our registered office address is Unit 29 The Town Hall, St George’s Stree, Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. HX7 7BY. Our projects take place in a variety of venues across Calderdale and online.
We obtain information from you in the following instances:
  • When you register to join one of our classes or activities. When you first attend a class/ project we will ask you to complete a short registration form.
  • If you are joining us as a team member (staff or volunteers), we will obtain your personal information as part of our on-boarding process.
  • If you register to receive our newsletter, email updates, or send us your information via our social media pages.
We also sometimes receive information indirectly from a third party, such as a partner organisation.

The personal information we collect may include your name, address, email address, date of birth, and telephone number (landline and/or mobile). If you are attending a class, workshop or project, we will also require general information on your health to ensure the suitability of our activities. If you pay with card for our services we do not obtain your card information, it is collected by our third party payment processors, who specialise in capturing data securely and processing credit/ debit card transactions safely.
