About EMD UK

EMD UK, previously known as EMDP (The Exercise Movement & Dance Partnership), was constituted in 2006 to facilitate and support dance fitness organisations.

Since then, EMD UK has continued to grow and change to meet the needs of a rapidly expanding market.

In early 2016 we became the national governing body for group exercise, with a remit to support and grow the sector. We work in partnership with Sport England to deliver the government’s national physical activity agenda. To achieve this, we are finding ways to engage with the 11.5m people in the UK that currently do no form of physical activity and introduce them to group exercise opportunities.

Meet Our Team

We want to make our sector accessible for everyone and we work with a wide range of organisations, from commercial operators to local communities and national providers, to ensure there are multiple access routes for all ages, abilities and interests to take part.
