About True Motion Dance

True Motion Dance was founded in 2010 by Kelly Marie Such; an experienced and professional choreographer, teacher, dancer and artist. Kelly works across Norfolk, providing dance classes and workshops to groups and individuals in schools and the community, choreographing first dances, and delivering one off classes for events, birthdays and hen parties.

Kelly believes that dance is for everyone and understands the positive effects dance can have. True Motion Dance is about more than just developing technical and performance skills in dancers. Dance can help participants develop confidence and communication skills as well as aid in physical and mental well being.

True Motion Dance believe it is important to encourage and develop the skills of future dance artists. In 2011 Kelly launched the youth mentor scheme. Youth mentors attend the classes of younger participants and work along side Kelly to support and encourage dancers. Youth mentors develop their understandings of what it is to be a dance artist and learn more about planning and delivering dance classes. All youth dancers aged 10+ who participate in regular classes can apply to become a youth mentor.
