"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 winter the warmth of Persian dance and culture arrives in Anchorage! I look forward to return to Alaska this February to meet old friends, greet new ones, and dance in the wonderful Multicultural Drumming and Dance Festival there among other artists and exhibitions. Come also to join my four day workshop in dance and history of classical, sacred, and folk dances of Persia in Journey of the Silk Road.

Late in February I am delighted to open the annual University of Kansas Persian Culture Festival as the featured soloist in an evening schedule of Persian classical, folk, ancient, contemporary, and Tajik dances.

But here in the San Francisco Bay Area where winters are mild please join us for our monthly gathering of Sacred Circle and Dance of the Soul for dance, meditation, healing, and self growth, Feb. 1 and 3.
