Dance company moves public classes to LIPA

LOCAL, award winning dance company Movema are relocating their popular world dance classes to the state of the art facilities at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). 

From March 2017 classes will run Monday and Wednesday evenings and include African, Bollywood, Yoga and their signature class 'World Fusion', developed by LIPA Alumna and previous Lecturer and Movema Co-Director Penny Caffrey. Co-Director and teacher of African dance Ithalia Forel says:- "Liverpool dance enthusiasts will LOVE taking our exciting classes in these amazing studios!"

In 2016 Movema moved into their own premises at Cain's Brewery following a successful Kickstarter campaign, but the Cain's landlords have not renewed their contract and they will have to leave in March 2017. Co-Director Maria Malone says:- "We are very disappointed at the decision, however we are determined to keep up our great work and we are extremely happy to move on to bigger and better premises to continue our great work in the City."

Movema and LIPA have a long history of successful partnership. They jointly deliver dance sessions on Mental Health wards for Merseycare NHS Foundation Trust, Movema directors work as visiting lecturers and the institute has been the host venue for their master class programme with international artists since 2015.  The new LIPA Primary School was the 1st school to introduce the company's learning resource 'World in a Box' to their curriculum.  Co-Director Penny Caffrey says:- "There is a natural synergy between our organizations, bringing high quality dance experiences into people's lives and we are looking forward to working together more closely."
