Who are EMD UK? 

EMD UK, previously known as EMDP (The Exercise Movement & Dance Partnership), was constituted in 2006 to facilitate and support dance fitness organisations.

To achieve this, we are finding ways to engage with the 11.5m people in the UK that currently do no form of physical activity and introduce them to group exercise opportunities.
