Dance Woman, Dance.....
I leave you all with this beautiful image of my amazing young friend, and her friends, dancing on stage in Tehran, during the Fajr Theater Festival's closing ceremonies in Tehran last February. This performance was described as "harakaat nemaayeshi", which is the "Islamic" way of describing dance (raqs). You know how that goes, if you call it something else, it will be less sinful! Pictures were taken by Omid Salehi in Tehran, and if you want to look at all 20 pictures in the series, you can see them here: http://www.iranian.com/Salehi/2003/February/Dance/ . Have a good weekend.
(I know Mehran tried to teach me how to avoid putting the entire URL here, but I didn't learn, I'm afraid!)
