Exercise, Movement and Dance (EMD) is the National Governing Body (NGB) for dance in the UK.

Dance is an art form that refers to movement of the body – usually rhythmic and to music – used as a form of expression.

EMD work in harmony with affiliates and partners to get more people enjoying EMD and to increase the amount of quality teachers delivering EMD.

EMDP work over three organisational pillars: the EMD Academy, the EMD Community and the EMD NGB. The three pillars are each designed to assist the sector through firstly providing quality training to increase and improve delivery, secondly to support all those involved and thirdly to help relevant parties develop what they can offer.
