I love dance and am excited about the opportunity to be involved in supporting an energised and inclusive organisation to develop.
It’s time to move forward together. Let’s understand each other, let’s respect each other, let’s dance together, let’s live together. Read more…
I believe that the arts are one of the differences between surviving and thriving. Access to good quality, authentic arts experiences is very important and I have been inspired by the work of Movema who provide dynamic and engaging community projects, original education resources and facilitation as well as supporting individuals to reach their potential.
I feel a strong synergy between Movema’s vision, what it stands for, and my own personal values, passion and professional role. This is an exciting opportunity for me to support the growth of such a dynamic and inspiring team and company. I am passionate about the impact dance can have on someone’s confidence, happiness, body language, sense of belonging and so much more!
I believe that creativity in all of its’ forms is best used as a tool for social change and providing transformational cultural experiences. This is exactly what Movema does! The positive engagement through dance that Movema provide for its growing audiences is inspiring and important work that I’m glad to support.
Maxine works in Higher Education and has undertaken a variety of student engagement and development roles at the University of Bristol. She enjoys leading programmes and supporting a diverse mix of students to fulfil their potential. Maxine looks forward to combining her love of dance with other skills and talents to support Movema’s mission and growth.
I was struck by how engagement with the work Movema does makes me feel. The overriding emotion is joy. This is a vital emotion, one which is increasingly difficult to come by in daily life for many people. I also feel the opportunities to access joy will be increasingly important for everyone, in the next few years.

I’m really proud to be a patron of Movema. I think it’s really important at the moment that young people and their families have the opportunity to learn about different cultures in their society and also to express themselves and keep fit and active.

Movema are a fantastic company, working to inspire and educate people. They make more people aware of different types of music and dance from around the world in a really friendly and fun way. I especially love getting my leotard on and grooving to their Bollywood routines!
