Momentum was a year-long project which ran from January 2018 and aimed to increase physical activity and improve the health and wellbeing of around 400 inactive young women and girls in two areas of North Lanarkshire – Kilsyth and Motherwell.
Funded by the Sporting Equality Fund through Spirit of 2012, YDance ran taster sessions and set up after school clubs and community groups for young women and girls aged 9 to 16. There was also an opportunity for young women to take part in the Arts Award course, as well as volunteering opportunities so they could learn more about dance and develop their leadership skills. There was also a Celebration Day held in October 2018 to celebrate their achievements throughout the year.
Momentum was run in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council.
