CREATE is all about providing accessible and engaging creative dance and movement projects for people of all ages. Partially or fully funded, and often collaborating with other art forms like music and poetry. Create believes in inclusivity and artistry for all. We also love to collaborate, and help to facilitate the opportunity to get involved in other projects, if you have an impactful community focused project idea get in touch!
South Holland in Motion's aim is to break down barriers to dance, and performance for adults with different abilities and access needs. Over ten weeks, Diamondz Dance & Adults Move Lincolnshire collaborated with five organisations that provide either social support, day care or residential care to adults, forming bonds of trust, creativity, and joy. After speaking with the group leaders, we designed a unique delivery style that not only fits the participants but also empowers them, including creating their own solo & group choreography. South Holland in Motion engaged 85 individuals and their support workers through the delivery of pop-up sessions and weekly sessions. Including a video sharing and two live performances.
Sense in Motion’ - A 16-hour dance project working with individuals with SEND & their support workers at Sense Centre Pinchbeck, creating a creative movement piece that includes everyone. It was filmed, edited and ended in a cinema-style sharing in August 2023. We have seen huge benefits to the participants, from increased mobility to focused engagement they do not always have in other activities. Dance is not only a form of physical exercise, but a creative outlet, enabling participants to express themselves and their emotions.
The unexpected flash mob in the town centre of Spalding, Lincolnshire had a hugely positive impact on the local community. With around over 200 people, of all ages, coming together to support or express themselves through dance, the atmosphere was charged with joy and excitement.
The energy of the flash mob brought the whole town alive and reminded the locals of the power of joy and unity. It will undoubtedly live long in the memories of everyone who experienced it and its impact will help to pave the way for an equally impactful return of the Flower Parade.

A group of Diamondz School of Dance dancers put together a piece in collaboration with Callum Brazzo to perform at True Motion 2023.
The piece represented that dance is a universal language, and its impact spans generations. The spoken word piece is about empowering those that think differently through the language of movement, and the visual representation of the autistic pride flag, to show the common humanity we share.
Dancers, Abbi & Callum put this piece together in approximately 4hours and we were successfully chosen by the panel to be apart of the regional shortlist. We hope the message of this spreads far & wide as it’s something we are extremely passionate about 🥰
