Contributed By:  Shahrzad Dance Academy

Persia, bordering Central Asia and the Middle East, is the home of Classical Persian Dance. This dance style is a fluid yet rhythmic dance form, which emphasizes expression through the motion of hands and wrists, the relationship between the face and the hands, and smooth, organic transitions within movement patterns. The line and positioning of the body reflect the rich and refined aesthetics of Persian culture.

Terminology of the movements will be presented in Farsi (Persian language). Pre-recorded Classical Persian music will be used in class.

Shahrzad’s unique style of Contemporary Persian Ballet captures & combines the unleashed expression of contemporary dance with the refined, poetically potent aesthetics of ancient Persia, resulting in choreography that is both conceptual and organically expressive.
