Welcome to Meraki Dance Collective

We are Liam & Loura – Meraki Dance Collective – two passionate professional dancers and dance teachers. We travel throughout the world (physically or virtually) to join your festival or event as a performer, guest teacher, organizer, judge, model… you name it! Momentarily we are based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Take your time to get to know us and the projects we do. Feel free to contact us with any proposal! Surprise us! We are looking forward to working with you in the near future.

Yours truly,

Liam O’Callaghan & Loura Sita van Krimpen
