"Your Body is
          the Canvas"


Dare to step into the ancient!

Experience the sacred dances of Persia, the Silk Road, and the near East. Learn to communicate through classical and folkloric dances which are culturally significant today, as in ancient times. Farima Dance evokes the inner god or goddess with dance instruction rich with historical and anthropological reference that will feed your soul.


My soul is soaring with delight and pride this month! Only few days left before my sold-out Mystical and Cultural Tour of Iran begins, the culmination of my dreams and 5 years work. An international guest list is participating in this first-ever 2 week tour of Iran’s sacred secrets. Furthermore, I’m honored that the Simorgh Dance Company will be soon performing a number of dances I’ve trained them and choreographed for a presidential welcome. The Simorgh Dance Company is a member of the Farima Dance Collective.

I wish to send my love and thanks to all those who participated in workshops and supported last month’s Dances of the Silk Road Dance Camp and Retreat in Turkey. With luck we can all come together next year. Finally, special thanks to those that made my dance workshop and performance in Ankara, Turkey a sold-out success!
