Building the Encyclopedia of Iranian Dances
Hundreds of dances reflecting the diverse cultures of Iran, have been passed along by oral tradition in remote and often inaccessible parts of Iran. As oral traditions die out, IPA has embarked on a journey to identify, document, and protect the dances of Iran, and share these rich cultural gems before they disappears forever.
