The most important art form to focus on

by Abarmard on

Since dance is forbidden in the Islamic Republic, it is extremely important to keep this form of art alive. I however would argue that we need to try to modernize our art and in this case dance from our own base rather than Ballet.

There are plenty of works in the West and worldwide available in this form, Iranian artists and dancers, should focus more on growing our traditional dance to a more acceptable art, and hopefully grow it to satisfy the needs our time.

It worries me to realize that our dance might get lost by the passage of time.
