Get involved

Professionally managed by teams of dedicated volunteers from local communities, e.motion21 is making a huge impact with little resources.

e.motion21 adheres to an objective of “low cost” both for students and in the way we run our organisation. We have developed a working model that provides a high quality, professional program while retaining low fees to ensure that all students and families can participate. We achieve this through our volunteer base and by forging partnerships with community and corporate organisations.

Our programs are currently supported by a mix of local and national businesses and through our successful efforts in securing philanthropic and grant support.

Becoming a partner

e.motion21 possesses a range of opportunities for organisations who may wish to support our programs. The nature of our organisation enables us to engage with partners regardless of the size of investment a partner can commit.

Volunteer with us

e.motion21 is run almost exclusively by volunteers who support our vision of enhancing lives and changing perceptions of Down syndrome within society.

We simply could not run our weekly programs and public performances without the generous support of our volunteers and supporters who share their valuable time, expertise and resources. The organisation is always on the lookout for passionate, committed people to join the e.motion21 team.

e.motion21 is a not-for-profit organisation founded in April 2009 by Cate Sayers, after she was unable to find an appropriate dance class to meet the learning needs of her daughter who has Down syndrome.

e.motion21 has a huge vision; to enhance lives and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society. It does this through moving bodies and moving boundaries.

Moving bodies: providing evidence-based dance and fitness programs for children and young adults with Down syndrome in a supportive and social environment tailored to meet their specific learning needs.

Moving boundaries: providing channels to engage positively with individuals, families and communities to build relationships, uncover new potential, promote awareness and raise expectations of the abilities of people with Down syndrome.
