WHY DID I START LEARNING PERSIAN DANCE

This is one of the most frequent questions I receive on Instagram - Well, I did it because of belly dance.

I’m always curious to explore folklore dances of the Near East, as well as Silk Road. It may seam that they have little connection to belly dance, but this is just a first glance impression.

Specifically regarding Persian dance, I was super intrigued by its elegant and intricate arm work, and I wanted to bring this technique into my belly dance style. If I only knew back then that Persian dance will become such an important part of my repertoire.

Which folklore styles are you intrigued to study one day, and why? Tell me below in comments
