We design large & small-scale events that integrate community & professional dance artists, site-specific work & audience inclusive arts practices. Our outreach programs reach 4,000 participants/learners per year.

Kaeja is driven by two distinct artistic forces, Artistic Directors Karen & Allen Kaeja. Kaeja bridges their visions while the space between invites others in to be key collaborators. The Company has created 200+ works, performed, created & taught worldwide: the UK, Europe, China, Japan, USA, Mexico, Scandinavia, India & Israel among others.
