Who we are
e.motion21 is a not-for-profit organisation that provides Australian-first, innovative dance and fitness programs for children and young adults with Down syndrome.
Through performance-based activities and community engagement, e.motion21 aims to enhance lives for people with Down syndrome and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society.
- To enhance lives and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society through dance, fitness and performance.
We achieve this by
- Moving bodies: providing programs to children and young adults with Down syndrome in supportive and social environments tailored to meet their specific learning needs.
- Moving boundaries: engaging positively with individuals, families and communities through our programs, performances and media to uncover new potential, promote understanding and raise expectations.
Specialised programs are offered in seven Victorian locations in Kew, Pascoe Vale, Geelong, Cranbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo and Bundoora.
We use the latest global research and techniques to develop our dance programs and we train specialist dance teachers to deliver a meaningful experience for all participants.
The benefits of the e.motion21 program are wide-ranging and include health, exercise, social and self-esteem outcomes for participants. These benefits in-turn positively impact our student’s families and the community at large.
