WeMove is Haringey Sixth Form College’s dance enrichment programme. It aims to provide a platform for young people’s leadership, creative talents and a sense of community-building through dance.

WeMove started in January 2012 with one girls dance class and since then has grown to its current form: nine weekly dance classes and projects, reaching over 100 young people each year, working with different schools around the borough and with a number of professional dance artists and companies.
