Khaita Joyful Dances

Khaita means "Harmony in the Space". Our aim is to encourage harmony within the individual, between people and their environment through dance, this powerful and joyful tool; dancing is the best way to harmonize movement and sound, to learn how to understand space and relate with others. Through dancing we can discover our inner harmony and how it resonates with the harmony of the Universe.

The dances we have chosen are based on modern songs performed by young Tibetan artists. Some of our dances follow traditional Tibetan patterns while others have a more modern style. In this last type of dances we try to use movements to express themes of the songs making the dance more meaningful.

The topics of the lyrics dont only reflect Tibetan culture but are the heart of each culture as we can recognize through them values that are important for all humanity, such as love to our homeland, the desire to maintain our language and culture, the wish to overcome borders and separations between different groups and the desire to spread peace in the world.
