Embody Dance was founded in 2009 by Emma Bright who wished to create a company that made dance accessible to all. Embody’s ethos ‘Giving Everybody the Chance to Dance’ was born whilst Emma studied Dance at The University of Chichester. Emma drew the Embody logo by hand & hoped someday that somebody would see it. Returning to her hometown of Nuneaton, Emma founded Embody Dance with the mission to; Engage. Excite & Empower dancers of all ages & abilities in a nurturing & supportive environment. Embody Dance Nuneaton was born.
Embody Dance has been delivering dance classes for over thirteen years across the communities of Nuneaton, Bedworth, Hinckley & Coventry, engaging hundreds of dancers in weekly classes. In September 2021 Embody Dance opened its own dance studio in Weddington, Nuneaton.
Each year Embody Dance stages an annual show at Bedworth Civic Hall. Hundreds of Embody dancers aged 4-84 take part in the Embody Show in a celebration of another year of Embody Dance.
Emma is very proud of all the classes that Embody Dance continues to provide within Nuneaton. Emma’s favourite part of Embody is still handing a dancer their first Embody t-shirt with the Embody Logo that she created by hand all those years ago. Emma still can’t choose her favourite Embody Class to teach as she loves them all!

‘Why did you chose Embody Dance?’
My daughter has had dance classes at Embody since she was 3 and her confidence has grown so much. Emma, Sara and the whole team are so welcoming and nurturing of all the dancers and my daughter thoroughly enjoys her lessons. Emma greets everyone with a big smile and I feel so happy knowing that my daughter is going to have a great time. She really looks forward to going and loves being part of the Embody family. I would recommend Embody to anyone looking for a nurturing and fun dance class with amazing teachers.
I enrolled my daughter to start Embody Dance once the latest lockdown had lifted. My 5 year old had become very nervous and apprehensive about new situations but Embody has really helped her to come out her shell. Emma, Sara and Ceri are absolutely amazing, they are encouraging and patient and at the second class my daughter was comfortable enough to stay all by herself. She has so much fun and always wants to go back week after week. Thanks team Embody
I was at embody for 10 years- I can honestly say embody is the best dance school with the best atmosphere from not only students but also the cheerful atmosphere from all of the teachers.
The excitement that surrounded the embody dance shows each year without pressure of exams or being graded was definitely my favourite part as it give people of all age and ability a chance to dance and a chance to perform. And also set me up for my future dream career in the performance industry that I am currently working towards a degree for.
Thankyou Emma and the rest of embody for making me the dancer I am today!
When my 5 year old daughter wanted to ‘go dancing’ I knew that I didn’t want her to somewhere that made her feel like she had to be someone she is not… or be pressured to achieve certain physical moves… or to feel like she is not good enough just the way she is. 5 years on, she is still loving her classes and is over the moon that Embody has now got its own studio! Emma is the absolute beating heart of Embody and I have 100% confidence in her abilities and attitudes towards children and making dancing something that is attainable to all! You will never be ‘not good enough’, you just have to want to dance 😃⭐️
Embody holds the community aspect at its heart – it’s not about expensive costumes and make up, it’s not about where you live or your circumstance, it’s about coming together to enjoy dancing without barriers or unnecessary pressures.
Embody is fun and enjoyable. There is no pressure on the children, they are there to purely dance and have a good time. And as parents we don’t need to take out a second mortgage for costumes for dance shows! I always recommend Embody when anyone asks me where the girls dance x
There is no pressure for the children, which is especially important as Nathan regularly adds his own little twiddly bits into routines. The children turn up, do their best, have fun and leave. What more could we ask for!
It’s the whole experience
Having 2 girls in very different age groups means they can dance to their age and ability, my youngest loves the freedom to express
In the different dances and it’s all about having a go even if it’s wrong as long as you’re having fun!
My elder daughter now does 2 classes, and this again was down to Emma noticing her talent and letting her join another group too, there is potential and its noticed and left to progress and it’s not forced its always up to the children,
My girls have never been happier at a dance school or stayed for this long we all love our Embody family
