Cultural creativity is at our core and our new resource World in a Box is set to become the next big thing for time-saving savvy teachers - an inspirational teaching resource for dance and world cultures!  The resource includes a series of adaptable lesson plans, music, videos, moves, props and more to get classes dancing and learning.

Spread the word! Refer Movema to a primary school teacher, by sharing our fantastic World in a Box YouTube link: and email address
