Crowds get active at Oyé

Thousands of people flocked to Sefton Park this weekend for Africa Oyé music and culture festival.

Movema dancers entertained the crowds from the main stage and delivered workshops throughout the weekend from the Oyé Active Zone.  Participants of all ages joined our fun sessions including Afro Brazilian and Caribbean dance, Zumba and family fun with Movema’s World In A Box©.

As well as the high-energy action, there was Yoga, Kora playing, relaxation, holistic therapies and Dance for Wellbeing in the Chill Zone.

Each day ending with a jaw-dropping display of improvised moves at the Youth Dance Battle!

The Movema team would like to say huge thank you to all of the artists, volunteers and supporters who helped make this happen. We are looking forward to next year already!
