Chance To Dance

Each year Movema provide 4-8 training opportunities for people who are refugees and asylum seekers. Our offer supports the development of professional skills, towards becoming Dance Leaders in their communities. Funded by Our Liverpool grant awarded by Liverpool City Council.

Dancing since a kid back home at school. I wanted to do these dance activities. When I am going through a lot, music dancing to lift mood and God and faith helps me, happiness comes from deep in side you. I get to meet new people
doing Movema activities.
