Between Iran and Japan
— Persian Dance and Life

This event “Between Iran and Japan — Persian Dance and Life” will be the second in a series of events following up the first event of the series “Between Iran and Japan — Life with Poetry and Music”, which was held last January.
This time’s guest speaker will be Mina Saleh, who has been performing various types of Middle Eastern dances while working as a show producer and instructor at the dance studio that she founded. Through her dance demonstrations she will introduce us to the various facets of Iranian dance, including its relation to music, its differences from other genres such as Arabian and Belly dancing, and the diversity of styles found among the regions. She will also share some stories of her long journey in dance, which is going to show us the value of dancing and the role that it has played in her life.
