In Tibetan, “Khaita” means “Harmony in space”.

Khaita Joyful dances teach us to be aware of our own movement in the space around us. In dancing we also learn to be present to the interior shifting of thoughts and emotions. As we cultivate this relaxed presence in movement, harmony and joy develop naturally. The choreography of these dances is based on the rhythms and melodies of the songs of young contemporary Tibetan singers, rich in the imagery of life on the “Roof of the World”, just as the songs are. It shows the vitality of an ancient culture whose core motivation has, for centuries, been the happiness of all beings, in harmony with the environment where they live.
