What it means to be a Life Rooms partner:
"The work Life Rooms does is simply incredible and very much needed, especially in current times. It's been a pleasure to work with Liferooms participants and staff in this way; it just goes to show how two initiatives working together with a similar vision can have a stronger impact.
"At Movema, we're all about bringing different communities together, connecting and celebrating each other through world dance. We've had some amazing feedback so far from participants- comments like 'It's rewarding for us to serve the community in this way with Life Rooms'.
We currently run two courses a week with Life Rooms; World Dance Fitness and Qi Gong (take a look at the Life Rooms Zoom timetable to see when the next class is). This is to ensure there is something for everyone. We realize that some people may want to attend a really energetic course, whereas others will want something that is calmer, but at the same time really grounding. Both are really enjoyable and our facilitators have the interests and learning needs of participants at heart.
