Khaita means “Harmony in Space”. "Kha” means “space/sky”. “Ta” means “harmony/melody”.
Khaita Joyful Dances appeared in 2011, when Chögyal Namkhai Norbu started collecting the songs of young Tibetan artists that he saw on YouTube. What he saw was not just a simple singing, but a very important message from the people of an endangered culture, that, with its rich heritage, can bring benefit to the whole world. Courageous Tibetan musicians sing about brotherhood, love and commitment to their country and people, respect to their environment, and hope for reunion to save their language, knowledge and spiritual tradition.
Although Khaita origins are in Tibetan culture, it's goal is to promote harmony in the individual, between people and their environment through dance - a goal that goes beyond the limits and area of one's culture itself. As individuals, during the dance we learn to be present at the same time as the inner representation of thoughts and emotions arises. As we cultivate this relaxed presence in motion, harmony and joy evolve naturally and transmit it to our daily lives. Relaxation is the gateway to all forms of evolution. Having the tools to get us in a joyful and calm condition makes life much easier. It is especially effective for young people due to its mild nature, but at the same time it is very precise and helps to feel happy with oneself.
The historical significance of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu's cultural and academic commitment to society lies in the great value it has generally attributed to language, art and culture, while preserving the identity and integrity of the population as a way of enhancing all cultural heritage.
Due to this overlapping dimension, in 2016 Khaita Joyful Dances and the Vajra Dance (in 2010) were affiliated with the Council of International Dance (CID). The International Dance Council is an organization that reflects the principles of the United Nations and UNESCO, and is open to all approaches to dance, regardless of race, gender, religion, political affiliation or social status.
This is how Khaita was born - Harmony in space. Khaita beyond the collection of songs and dances, bringing an universal message of joy, reverence, tolerance and inner peace. A method that uses sound and movement to harmonize and release the body, energy and mind.
