About formation movement

 

Formation is a new dance and fitness collective that are passionate about the dance and music culture of the AFRICAN DIASPORA

FORMATION stems from a desire to offer a variety of dance and fitness options grounded in music we love and support. We offer welcoming, uplifting and inclusive environments in which young and old alike can have fun, gain body confidence, increase health awareness and knowledge. 

As an organisation we do three things:

  • Provide fitness classes that draw upon beats such as Soul, Reggae, Gospel, Bashment, Drum’n’Bass, Jungle, Grime. We offer a wide range, from contemporary HIIT and fast-paced Aerobic work-outs, to gentler Pilates and Yoga based classes.

  • Provide movement and dance classes that pass on the techniques, legacy and knowledge, be it Afro-dance, Soca, Ska, Dancehall, Street or Contemporary Urban dance.

  • Curate a programme of talks and discussions that record the heritage of these music and dance styles and scenes for future generations.

We collaborate with a range of venues around London which champion the arts and community. We are also passionate about creative education and the role of the arts in the development and growth of young people!
