Khaita Dance School is introducing a three-year educational program for new Khaita experts and instructors. First year will be dedicated to build up the expertise of the basics of the dances. 

In the First Course, the following aspects will be dealt with:

  • Application of sound and movement as tools in a path of awareness and presence.
  • Studying the origin of Khaita: meaning, history.
  • Familiarity with the material (texts, video, training video etc.): how it is organized, how and where to find it, categories of the songs and dances, etc.
  • Reading the texts of some of the songs, recognizing some of the recurring words.
  • The circle dances: steps, movements, recognizing the similarities and differences between the dances.
  • The choreographed dances: connection with the meaning of the texts, how they were created, by whom and on what occasion.
  • How to simplify some of the dances in order to adapt them to different situations (with children, big groups etc.) and how to lead a group.
  • Musical education: applying methods and resources of musical language with Pancho Company.
  • Workshop A, 10-11 March: acquiring transliteration system drayjor in order to correctly pronounce the texts with Fabian Sanders. For this workshop, please register here.
