So, what else can Movema offer to enhance the delivery of your curriculum?

 A. Pastoral Care and PSHE

Movema offers workshops, demonstrations and performances that cover the 5 key priorities towards Health and Wellbeing.

  1. Connect – Inclusion no matter of socio-economic background
  2. Be active – The promotion of good health, a work-out for the body and mind.
  3. Keep Learning – Creative methods of learning new skills about culture and diversity, that are cross curricular, supporting themes and subjects such as; geography and the environment, history, ICT, citizenship, health and wellbeing, religion, language, cultural studies, music, PE, and PSE.
  4. Give – Problem solving and teamwork via a new learning experience through practical and verbal educational cultural activities. Confidence building.
  5. Take Notice – Awareness and celebration of people, cultures, similarities and differences within the school and the wider community.

This workshop will enhance pupils’ understanding of its key concepts and equip them with a deeper understanding of and ability to improve their own health and wellbeing.

 B. Humanities and Citizenship

Movema offers workshops that explore geographical and historical aspects of the curriculum. As our company has regularly participated in Black History Month and Chinese New Year festivals and, alongside participation in events like Africa Oyé and the Brouhaha International Carnival, we have a deep passion for helping to enhance young people’s understanding of the worlds in which they live.

C. Physical Education

Movema offers one-off classes and courses of classes that can incorporate World Dances and Zumba to enhance pupils’ enthusiasm for exercise. We can provide classes throughout the school day- whenever most convenient for staff and departments.

With the recent Olympics and Paralympic Games along with other large scale sporting tournaments as hot topics for young people and adults alike, Movema can support the understanding of different cultures and countries through workshop activities.

‘What is that fast footwork Ronaldinho does when he scores?!’


 D. Modern Foreign Languages

We believe that alongside the language learning that takes place in schools, a trip through a country’s or people’s culture via dance, always serves to allow pupils a deeper understanding and appreciation of places these languages are spoken.  For example, in schools that teach Spanish language Movema can provide Latin music and dance including Salsa (from Cuba) and Flamenco (from Spain) as well as incorporating songs, dress and history where appropriate. 

‘Haced lo que decimos,
Moveos cuando digamos,
Preparados, listos, ya’

Movema regularly works with many schools and community groups, delivering a wide range of world dance activities.

Within a Movema workshop our dance and education specialists aim to provide a unique learning experience for participants regardless of their age, ability or background.  As well as giving demonstrations and leading practical dance and movement activities from around the world, Movema’s teachers use realia such as; pictures, maps, costume, instruments, literature and songs where suitable, to deliver a comprehensive workshop, highlighting both the similarities and differences of each culture whilst being fun and engaging for all.

The Movema team have over 10 years teaching experience from early years to University and professional level, and are dedicated to continuous quality development to ensure we meet the needs of all of our clients.
