Join us as we gather in the beautiful Roundhouse to experience the transformative power of dance - on International Day of Dance and around the time of Beltane. 

Infused with gentle guidance, soulful self-enquiry and evocative music - you will be part of a collective journey, fostering a sense of community, togetherness and co-creative synergy. As we move, the invitation is to expand into our embodied imagination, gather resources, reawaken the heart and dance in freedom and full expression - as we connect to the vitality and growth of the season. 

Meet Your Facilitator - Mira Khanya:

A passionate advocate of movement as a transformative and healing practice, Mira brings a wealth of experience and creativity to each journey. Her multidisciplinary background spans visual and performing arts, meditation, shamanic journeys, butoh, and therapeutic work, among other fields. Mira's deep connection with dance led her to complete an apprenticeship and training program under the guidance of the founders of the School of Movement Medicine. Today, she not only serves as a mentor for the school and creates independent work but also collaborates with Medicine Festival, Ecstatic Dance UK, Bristol & Brighton, Kaylo and other organisations - crafting immersive and meditative dance journeys.
