EMD UK (Exercise Move Dance UK), previously known as EMDP (The Exercise Movement & Dance Partnership), was constituted in 2006 when after consultation and support from Sport England, the three founding organisations; the Medau Society, Fitness League and the Keep Fit Association; came together to form an umbrella body for exercise, movement and dance.

Since 2006, 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, providing support to participants, instructors and fitness organisations. Supported by Sport England, we work in alignment with their national strategy: “Towards an Active Nation” which is at the heart of everything we do and strive to achieve.

EMD UK consistently exceeds industry standards and delivers against challenging projects and expectations in the pursuit of achieving a healthier nation through exercise.
