Khaita Joyful Dances (Tibetan Modern dances) weekend dance workshop with Lena Dumcheva
Saturday 28th April
11am-1:30pm & 2:30pm-5:30pm
Circle dances - we will study basic steps and learn several simple circle dances typical for Tibetan celebrations and festivals, including a Tashi dance - a well-wishing or auspicious dance performed with a khata, a traditional Tibetan ritual scarf.
Absolute beginners are very welcome, no previous experience is required.
Sunday 29th April
10:30am-1pm & 2pm-5pm
From simple circle dances on traditional folk melodies we will gradually progress into modern Tibetan tunes with more articulated choreographies that use mudra or symbolic gestures to transmit the meaning through the movement, celebrating profound Tibetan culture and spirituality.

Choegyal Namkhai Norbu about Khaita
Khaita means Harmony in Space. The aim of this joyful practice is to promote harmony within the individual and between people and their environment through dance. Dance is the best way to harmonize movement and sound, to develop an understanding of space and improve our capacity to relate to others.
