A response to the COVID 19 pandemic and the closure of our usual in person classes, MOVE IT - Live Online was born out of our desire to keep connected with our loyal fan base, offering joy and a damn good work out during isolation. 


This opened up a whole new community of MOVERS from across the state, nationally and internationally so now, wherever you are in the world, you are now able to join is from the comfort of your own home.

MOVE IT - About.png
About - Image for web b&w.jpg

An initiative of Dance Integrated Australia, MOVE IT began as a way to get more people dancing in the NSW Northern Rivers region, with classes springing up in Byron Bay, Newrybar, Clunes, Repentance Creek, Lismore and Brunswick Heads.

The classes originated from a request by a couple of members of the Marvell Hall Committee.


It started off with a small group of people coming together to do a Silent Disco exercise class, once a week with the original teacher, Tess Eckert leading the class. Then, Tess went on holiday and Philip Channells took the lead.


It became so popular there were more people attending than there were headsets available.

"It was all about having fun and not taking myself, or each other, so seriously," 


"That was the recipe for success."

 - Philip Channells
