Workshop

The Oriental Dance Workshop is a performance done by Rah?s character  Fatimeh. Fatimeh is an fun, high energy and accessible character that uses comedy to lure the participant, while confronting them and encouraging them to think critically about racial stereotypes.  The participants will be taught a traditional Iranian dance. This solo dance style consists of improvisation and graceful movements, gestures and poses and each dancer approaches this style in their own unique way. While individuals are learning the dance, they are also introduced to traditional Iranian music sung by female Iranian vocalists, traditional dress and other folk dance styles.
