Connecting with Sacred Dance
May 17 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
A lecture with Farima Berenji.
Internationally acclaimed dance artist, choreographer, and scholar Farima Berenji is passionate when she speaks of the role dance has played in her life. At her core, she believes dance rituals invoke healing and harmony. This was the legacy of these dances but over time, people have lost connection to them. She feels strongly that bringing these ancient rituals back to life will help bring positive change to our lives.
