Radiant Embodiment Series - with Banafsheh Sayyad
Date: March 9, 2021-
Location: On Line
Dance of Oneness – Persian master dance artist and transformational teacher, Banafsheh Sayyad (Sacred Dance Guild Honorary Member) communicates the universal message of Sufi mysticism and Divine Feminine wisdom in a passionate yet serenely meditative way. Her dance is an interplay between trance and directed movement, precise yet wild. Her explosive yet fluid movement is sensual and ritualistic, uniting the feminine and masculine energies, body and soul, light and dark in a marriage of opposites. She invokes the ancient roots of dance as devotion, prayer and adoration while blazing an original trail in contemporary dance with her masterly fusion of high level dance technique and spiritual embodiment.
