Description

Banafsheh, Dancer, Choreographer and Artistic Director

Iranian-born master dance artist and transformational teacher, Banafsheh 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 abandoned and unrestrained. 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 spirituality. Watch Banafsheh Dance

 

Her mesmerizing offering of the timeless Divine Feminine inside a contemporary gypsy dervish beckons all to engage, serve, exalt and honor our sexuality as sacred. She is one of the few bearers of authentic Persian dance in the world, an innovator of Sufi dance previously only performed by men and a pioneer in contemporary Persian dance, all of which characterize the form she has created called Dance of Oneness® geared towards empowering women and men through sacred embodiment.

Internationally known for her innovative movement vocabulary and high artistic and educational standards, she draws from her extensive background in Sufism, Persian dance and ritual, Tai Chi and flamenco to present a new form, rooted in tradition yet universal.

 

“Watching Banafsheh dance is to glimpse something both otherworldly as well as fully grounded in the momentous meaning of the present.” ~ LA Yoga


Banafsheh embodies Rumi’s messages, and with her capacious passion transports your soul. She dances the soul’s archetypal journey to unity with the Beloved through a whirlwind of Persian dance and spiritual Middle Eastern traditions. Aligned with Rumi’s mystical vision, her divine feminine Sufi dance marries serene peace with fierce passion. Banafsheh’s In the Fire of Grace DVD is accompanied by Andrew Harvey, spiritual teacher, author of over 30 books, and architect of Sacred Activism.
