Shahrzad Dance Company performed their beautiful new piece entitled, Rainbow, in two back-to-back performances for the students at Santa Rosa Charter School for the Arts on Monday, May 22nd.
Rainbow is comprised of 6 short dances that are connected together through audio narration. The performance is all about world peace. There is an interactive part of the program at the beginning where the audience had a chance to learn some key Persian Dance movements.
Shahrzad Khorsandi and her dancers Kim Ganassin and Marta Serra then asked for volunteers from the audience to come up and demonstrate what they’d learned.
There was wonderful participation from students and teachers alike! Once the audience was familiarized with the basics of Persian Dance, Sharhzad, Kim and Marta performed Rainbow. At the conclusion of the show, the volunteer students returned to the stage and joined in on the dance. A fantastic time was had by all!
