اجرای رقص های کلاسیک و مدرن ایرانی توسط شهرزاد خرسندی - شماره 4
(Live concert: January 2003 Dance Mission Theater, San Francisco) �The Forbidden Art� is a title intentionally picked by SDA to bring awareness to the fact that dancing by women is forbidden in Iran today. It has been that way since the revolution of 1979. Although it is not SDA�s intention to make any political statement, it IS our goal to present dance as a beautiful and intellectual art form that can be enjoyed by all. In addition to the recent political restrictions, historically speaking, Persian dance has not been perceived as a legitimate art form.
Born and raised in Iran, Shahrzad has been involved with Persian dance since childhood. She studied Dance and Performance Art at the California Institute of the Arts, and she holds a BA in Dance, as well as an MA in Creative Arts from San Francisco State University. Her dance training includes Modern, Jazz, Ballet, West African, Afro-Haitian, Flamenco, and Persian.
