Important Updates on Khaita Joyful Dances
We hope everybody enjoyed the wonderful opportunity of attending the first-ever Khaita Joyful Dances exams, graced by the presence of Rinpoche!
The exam has been an excellent example of how we can collaborate and progress together. The exam has also made clear the aspects that we, as Khaita instructors, need to continue working on – body movements, meaning of the songs, way of presenting and teaching to mention just some.
Rinpoche has recently clarified and formulated a method for insuring that Khaita Joyful Dances are adequately taught and can develop in a correct way.
Our Master indicated that:
1) All activities related to Khaita Joyful Dances are coordinated by Shang Shung Foundation in constant cooperation with Rinpoche and the commi2) A committee of 5 dancers – Adriana Dal Borgo, Lyudmila Kislichenko, Salima Celeri, Lena Dumcheva and Andrea Bucaioni – will coordinate the process of training and supervision.
3) Every Khaita instructor who wishes or is invited to teach any course, or any Gakyil that would like to organize a course, should first contact the committee through the Shang Shung Foundation at:
4) Everyone who has received the diploma and shows interest to teach Khaita Joyful Dances, should attend a further instructor training course and supervision.
5) Instructor training and supervision will be held in the Gars, organized in collaboration with the local Gakyil and the Shang Shung Foundation.
We will soon send more information about training and supervision dates and locations. We anticipate the first course to be at Dzamling Gar in June and the second course at Merigar West in summer/ autumn.
With many Tashi Delegs and thank you for the collaboration!!!
