Persian Classical Dance
Persia, bordering Central Asia and the Middle East, is the home of Classical Persian Dance. This dance style is a fluid yet rhythmic dance form, which emphasizes expression through the motion of hands and wrists, the relationship between the face and the hands, and smooth, organic transitions within movement patterns. The line and positioning of the body reflect the rich and refined aesthetics of Persian culture.
What Is Dance Therapy?
Dance/movement therapy, or DMT, is the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration.
DMT can help people with physical health by increasing strength, improving flexibility, decreasing muscle tension, and boosting coordination. It can also offer important mental health benefits including stress reduction and even symptom relief from conditions such as anxiety and depression.
Kurdish dance is a holding hand dance that is a part of Kurd’s dramatic rituals.
Kurdish dance that is known as Helperkê or Govend is a form of holding hands dance and dramatic rituals of Kurds. Helper means movement and shaking which is a sample of war movements. Helperkê is a group dance that performs in an incomplete circle of dancers who tied their hands and move from left to right. This group of dancers consists of males and females. The first person on the right and left leads the others and coordinates the rhythmic movements with a handkerchief in hand. Moreover, the double handkerchief dance is a type of Kurdish dance that is common in Kermanshah and Ilam Province. The person who stays on the left holds two handkerchiefs to show the skill of dancing. If you look at them from afar, they seem like a chain.
