Persian Dance for Teens

 

Hailing from Iran, Persian dance spans centuries of rich history and culture, and in recent years, has gained popularity for both its artistic and aesthetic appeal.

 

The dance form is similar to Belly dance in both its sensual and expressive nature, but emphasizes to a greater degree hand movements and elaborate facial expressions.

About Persian Dance

Persian dance refers to the type of dancing from Iran. The dance's heritage spans centuries of rich history and culture.

 

In this dance form, upper body motion is emphasized with hand motions and facial expressions. Although it has some similarities to other Middle Eastern dances, Persian dance is actually very distinct in both its moves, as well as the emotions the dance is meant to evoke.
