          the Canvas"


Dare to step into the ancient!

Farima Dance evokes the inner god or goddess with dance instruction rich with historical and anthropological reference that will feed your soul.


Open your sail to a mighty wind that beacons you to travel to new adventures this summer! Fulfil your sense of adventure, join us and come to the Dances of the Silk Road Camp and Retreat in Turkey and more this summer.

Registration for our September Mystical and Cultural Tour of Iran is closed. I am so excited, honored, and blessed to be the first Iranian woman to offer a tour of the history, mysticism, art, music, and dances of Iran!! If you would like to become part of a future tour or book separate hotels let me know. This has always been my dream and finally it is coming true!! I am so honored to be the first Iranian woman to do this! Over 5 years in the making, if it were not for your interest, support, love, kindness and belief, I would not have not been able to accomplish it.

For your benefit the tour will include amazing guest artists, musicians, Sufi masters, professors, and scholars. Sufi Master Oruç Güvenç of Turkey will be joining us. They have invited us into their homes, weddings, restaurants, concerts, workshops, and more to experience their offerings! Looking forward to an amazing experience of culture, healing, mysticism, dance, sema, music, poetry and dances in PERSIA, the Land of Fire!

Look for sale soon of a two DVD compilation of my Persian, Silk Road, and Sacred dance performances. Proceeds from the DVDs help support the Farima Dance Collective.
