Ritual Dance Workshop کارگاه رقص آیینی
By Aura Art Group
This engaging workshop for adults, led by Nana Valajam, consists of two sections and includes ritual dances from different parts of Iran.
The Aura dance group will perform a sample piece at the beginning of the workshop so participants become familiar with the routine.
Participants will first learn the harvest blessing ritual dance from the north of Iran. For the second part, depending on the dancing capabilities of the participants, the instructor will choose a dance from Torbat Jaam (the wheat blessing ritual dance) or a dance from south of Iran such as the coffee blessing ritual dance.
