About Movema

Movema connects people and communities, helping nurture a safer and more understanding and tolerant world. Using dance and arts we give value and support to people who are often overlooked or marginalised in society. 

Initially established in Liverpool 2009, and then expanding to Bristol in 2013, Movema has used dance to strengthen many communities, providing people with meaningful connections and life changing experiences.

Movema has been operating as a company limited by guarantee since September 2009 and in December 2021 became a charity.

Movema is an award-winning world dance company founded by four female artists from diverse cultural backgrounds, based & working in Liverpool & Bristol areas.

We celebrate diversity through dance, creating:
• Safe spaces for different communities to come together, learn about each other & improve their health and wellbeing.
• High quality arts & culture experiences, including choreographed shows, parades, outdoor events & festival performances.
• Participation & learning projects such as workshops, masterclasses, schools programmes & teacher resources.
• Employment, apprenticeships, up-skilling opportunities for professional & emerging dance artists & our volunteer network.
