"Today for you the second part of the story of Bita, an Iranian dancer currently studying in the US. PC Naazanin
"It is surprising for many that I, as an Iranian woman, pursue dance professionally. In the field of contemporary dance, there is only a handful of Iranian dance artists. But we are there and we are making interesting works, in my opinion!
Dancing in Iran? Yes! dance classes exist and dancers exist as well! There is not much variety though - barely any in modern/contemporary forms. Public dance performances are a lot more restricted than say physical theatre, unless it’s private. And no one can pursue a degree in dance. Besides that, people dance and they love to see dances! The lack of dance resources is a political order (or disorder…!) not a cultural one." @bitabell @naza_nin.m #whatdancecando #story #temoignage #dancersoftheworld #dancer #contemporarydance #artist #dancephotography #photography #iran #tehran #iraniandancer #danceforchange #movement #danseuse
