Jaṛēṁ-Roots Celebrates Diversity and richness of all cultures

in the art of dance and music.

«... in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.»

-Maya Angelou

Help us Build a narrative dance show with live music, that celebrates our diversity, the beauty in our cultural differences, and sends a message of acceptance, tolerance, peace, and togetherness. 

I strongly believe that the way to successfully achieve this is through the universal language of dance, music and the arts.

Different communities are represented by different dance styles;

Flamenco, Indian contemporary "Katak", Hip Hop and Afro Diaspora.

Show Storyline


After one of their own has been ripped apart from their community, we follow female 1 and female 2 on their quest to save their friend. Whether it’s through being challenged or welcomed into a new community, this story shows the undeniable power of acceptance and tolerance.

Along with live music, Jaṛēṁ-Roots takes you on a journey of storytelling through dance, incorporating Urban street, Flamenco, Indian Contemporary (Kathak style) and various African dance styles.

This allows the audience to truly become captivated in the richness of the cultural exchange.

 Our storyline portrays diverse dance communities and touches on immigration while sending a message of peace and unity.

Our Core Values

While supporting independent artists showcasing a multicultural experience, the show aims to encourage understanding of cultures other than your own and inspire change, tolerance and unity. All the while contributing to the local economy.

"The message of this piece shows we are stronger unified no matter our race, background, gender, social status.

The world needs help right now, to build bridges not walls."

Our Mission

The mission of the show is to build bridges between dance styles, cultures, communities across the world, and inviting local artists to promote local talent.

Our goal is to give the audience an experience, to take them on journeys filled with learning, reflection, and expression.

Collaborating with local dancers specialising in various styles is central to our touring original production.

We are continually innovating, learning new techniques to enrich our artistry and performance. Our ability to embody different styles and cultural dances resonates with our audiences.


"By helping us develop this project you would support independent artists

and promote art with a message, a purpose."

Jarem-Roots has already travelled internationally with a concept video in Paris with critically acclaimed local artists.

A section of the piece, the afro- diaspora section, "The Lost Goddess" was also developped and premiered in Dixon Place NYC before it was toured in England as a work in progress receiving outstanding feedback and reviews.

This is only the beginning of Jarem-Roots touching different audiences in different towns and countries.
