Is Khyria being paid for this content?
Yes, Khyria was compensated throughout the process of building the website . Every interview, filming session, notation session and translation consultations were paid directly to Khyria and the other relevant participants such as our translators and musicians. Additional income was supplied through the online workshops that occurred between 2021-2022 along with a few donations from members of the international dance community. 50% of all income (after expenses such as website hosting fees) from the website moving forward is collected and periodically distributed to Khyria.
