The Nomad Dancers are a non-profit educational and cultural organization, dedicated to performing traditional dances from Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan and Central Asia. In celebration of the Persian New Year, known as Nowruz, Nomad Dancers will present a short program of dances from Iran and Afghanistan, followed by an opportunity to learn the Qashqai Wedding Dance. The dance is performed by the entire community whenever a marriage takes place. The class will be led by Artistic Director Adriane Whalen, who has spent many years studying Persian dance.
