"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.


With the arrival of spring Persians since ancient times gather to celebrate Norouz, the Persian New Year. Relatives and friends traditionally come from afar on Norouz to visit. This year I look forward to visiting my greater friends and family while sharing Persian dance and culture worldwide. First, come celebrate with us in our third annual Norouz cultural dinner and dance show this March 15 in San Jose. This event has sold out in years past so make reservations early. Next, in Brno, Czech Republic I join local musicians and dancers in concert. Look for details below. Wherever you celebrate Norouz have a peaceful and joyous spring!
