The Team

Who We Are

We are a group of female artists, physicians, scientists, and healers who use our traditional dances to perform stories of healthcare inequity.

We are activists who believe that diversity in healthcare stories should be represented by diverse women through diverse traditional dances, empowering communities while reminding medicine of the power of movement, music, and true stories. 

We are Aseemkala and we are excited to build the world of dance-based narrative medicine together with you!
