Our Mission / Objective

e.motion21 is a not-for-profit organisation that provides Australian-first, evidence based dance and fitness programs for children and young adults with Down syndrome.

Through performance-based activities and community engagement, e.motion21 aims to enhance lives for people with Down syndrome and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society.

Our vision
To enhance lives and change perceptions of Down syndrome within society through dance, fitness and performance.

We achieve 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, performances and media to uncover new potential, promote understanding and raise expectations.

Specialised programs are offered in nine Victorian locations in Ballarat, Bendigo, Cranbourne, Greensborough, Geelong, Highett, Kew, Pascoe Vale and Rowville.

We use the latest global research and techniques to develop our dance programs and we train specialist dance teachers to deliver a meaningful experience for all participants.

The benefits of the e.motion21 program are wide-ranging and include health, exercise, social and self-esteem outcomes for participants. These benefits in-turn positively impact our student’s families and the community at large.

Wills and Bequests

Leaving a gift in your will to e.motion21 is a practical and powerful way to make a difference in improving the lives of future generations of children and young adults with Down syndrome.

Your gift will ensure that we will be able to continue moving bodies and moving boundaries for years to come.

Ways of leaving a bequest in Victoria
There are a number of different ways in which you could include a bequest to e.motion21 in your Will:

  • Specific bequests are gifts of particular articles of property, e.g. a house, shares, furniture etc.
  • Pecuniary bequests are gifts of a specific sum of money.
  • Contingency bequests are made only when the executor of an estate cannot distribute the estate as planned in the Will.
  • Residuary bequests are made up of the remainder of an estate once pecuniary and specific bequests have been distributed.

General Donations

Donate to keep us moving

Since its inception, interest in the e.motion21 programs has increased dramatically with demand now far outstripping supply. In Victoria alone, the seven sites offering classes only service 10 per cent of the 4 to 40-year-old Down syndrome population.

There is also demand to expand the program interstate with waiting lists of families pleading for e.motion21 to arrive in their community.

Our programs are kept accessible and affordable for participants through a small weekly fee, with the remaining 90% of program funding coming through both in-kind and financial support from private donations, local and national businesses, philanthropic organisations and grants.

In order for us to deliver more dance programs we need more support. Your generous donation will help us to create a lasting impact on the lives of children and young adults with Down syndrome by:

  • offer more programs in the communities that need them most
  • train teachers and volunteers to support the dancers
  • supply specialised learning equipment.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible – every little bit helps. Any donation you are able to give is greatly appreciated. Please use our secure and simple PayPal system below.
