The UK Cheerleading Association (UKCA) and the Exercise Movement and Dance Partnership (EMDP)
In August 2011, UKCA affiliated to EMDP the umbrella governing body for Exercise, Movement and Dance (EMD) which is invested in by Sport England to sustain and grow participation in EMD in a sporting and physical activity context.
EMDP and UKCA are confident that through working in partnership they can jointly achieve significant progress with all aspects of increasing the reach, participation and satisfaction levels in Cheerleading, as well as presenting greater opportunities in the wider exercise, movement and dance sector for all ages, genders and abilities.
