I am a Persian sacred dancer and transformational teacher. I've helped innovate Sufi dance which was previously only performed by men. I have created a style of dance I call Dance of Oneness® which fuses rigorous dance technique with spiritual embodiment, specifically in service of raising more awareness of the Feminine Divine. I teach retreats and workshops across North America, Europe and Turkey as well as group and private sessions in the Los Angeles area. My performances have been presented extensively in festivals and by presenters in North America, Europe and Australia where I have received tremendous generous acclaim. My dance film In the Fire of Grace with Andrew Harvey traces Rumi’s journey of the soul in dance. I have an MFA in Dance from UCLA where I have also taught dance. I am also a doctor in Chinese Medicine and use this knowledge in my teaching to benefit my students.
