"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.


This October I return to friends in Manchester, UK for a three day lecture, concert, and workshop series known as the Seven Cities of Love to collaborate with some of the most distinguished scholars and artists of Persian and Turkish cultures. Then look for me in Vienna for a two day Dances of the Silk Road workshop. By month end my final tour leg will be my long-awaited trip home. Wherever you live may you find dance with me soon. Look for my workshops below.

Thank you to all who participated in the sold out Mystical and Cultural Tour of Iran for 15 wonderful days last month of dance and discovery. Together we helped make memories and fulfil dreams.

Do you have children ages 4-10 fond of dance? In San Jose, CA we introduce a weekly Persian Dance for Kids class especially for them in mind with dance, culture, and storytelling. See below for more details among our class choices or inquire now.
