Fame Art Dance Productions is the creative factory of professional Persian Dance productions. We offer a collection of professional Persian Dance shows, ready to bring a unique addition to the festivals. We look at dancing as an integral way to experience unity. Iranian Dances are dance styles indigenous to Iran. Genres of dance in Iran vary depending on the area, culture, and language of the local people, and can range from sophisticated reconstructions of refined court dances to energetic folk dances. The population of Iran includes many ethnicities, such as Kurds and Azerbaijani peoples, in addition to numerous Iranian tribal groups which can be found within the borders of modern-day Iran.
Fame Art Group brings a creation of combined Tradition Iranian Dance moves with Sama. Sama is a Sufi ceremony performance and means "listening". These performances often include singing, playing instruments, dancing, recitation of poetry and prayers, wearing symbolic attire, and other rituals. Sama is a particularly popular form of worship in Sufism. The Sama represents a mystical journey of human's spiritual ascent through mind and love to perfection. Turning towards the truth, the follower grows through love, deserts the ego, finds the truth and arrives at perfection. Dancer then returns from this spiritual journey as an individual who has reached maturity and a greater perfection.
