About E.Motion21

In Australia, e.motion21 is the only organisation of its type running weekly evidence-based programs that are improving the life outcomes of individuals with Down syndrome and their families, as well as engaging volunteers, strengthening communities and building inclusion.

e.motion21’s vision is to enhance lives and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society through dance, fitness and performance. e.motion21 achieves this by:
• Moving bodies; providing programs to children and young adults with Down syndrome in supportive and social environments tailored to meet their specific learning needs.
• Moving boundaries; engaging positively with individuals, families and communities through our programs and performances to uncover new potential, promote understanding and raise expectations.

e.motion21 was founded in 2009, by Cate Sayers to give her daughter the opportunity to dance in a learning environment that catered to her abilities. Since then e.motion21 has grown from six to 250 weekly participants across 28 classes, with 1200 classes provided annually. Classes currently operate in seven Victorian locations: Ballarat, Bendigo, Bundoora, Cranbourne, Geelong, Kew and Pascoe Vale.
