Experience one of the world’s most enchanting dance forms! Inspired by Persian poetry and miniature artwork, Persian and Silk Road dance combines swirling arabesques, sweeping gestures, shoulder isolations, footwork patterns, and dazzling spins. In this class we will learn various Persian and Central Asian dance movements, vocabulary, styles, expressions, turning, and short sequences. Class will also focus on the historical aspect of each dance style, costuming, and music.
Students will learn basic Persian and Silk Road movements and skills for practice and performance in several choreographies. Beginners and advanced level students with background in ballet, Persian, or contemporary dance are welcome.
This month our special focus is on Georgian traditional dance.
