"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.


Thank you beautiful Czech Republic and to Brno where recently I performed in a Norouz Concert and taught a dance workshop! Once again, I am truly grateful for your beautiful souls, gifts, kindness and love of culture! Love and blessings to you all and see you soon. Thank you Marek Čejka as well for publishing my interview in Lidové Noviny and for all the work you do to create peace.

Next in Istanbul on April 11 I hold a workshop in Sacred and Mystical Dance. Finally, the early-bird discounted registration for my Awaken the Soul, a five day mystical dance and healing retreat, in beautiful Tuscany, Italy ends this April 1. See details here and be sure to register early to take advantage of savings on this event.
