Here is the video description written by the person who posted this video on you-tube:

"Hilarious dance moves by an Iranian dance group at a party or wedding!
For me, it's just pretty damn funny. good shit... :D
[These people are from the countryside or poor neighborhoods or high school dropouts, you can't find these sort of people in big cities such as Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan]..."


I watched the video for the 2nd time and I can't help laughing......the dancers acted like they have been shocked by high-voltage electricity, but not even one person laughed in the audiences!

Thank you, MG, for your kind comments!

Not unexpected

by John on

My azizam tells me before every Iranian show that we attend that I should expect to see at least one javad dancer embarrassing himself in front of the audience, and she hasn't been wrong yet.


confused!آش شله قلمکار !


Confused nation by Maavareh and internet! This is one of the side effects of being part of the digital global village, losing your cultural identity!آش شله قلمکار!

Yolanda, the drummer rocked: A+, the dancers get E for effort. They could evolve into a good B-Dance team though.

RG, It's called welcome to a working class wedding or birthday, or Khatneh Soron or... YCA (abbreviation for: you're correct again) it's a combination of all the above: 2500+1400+32=  gives you too many years of material and cultural poverty to care for. Your note reminded me of Marzieh Oskoie's encounter with the Gypsies and their music in Khuzistan and ultimately being disappointed of the "unauthenthic" nature of their music and culture and lives, then reminding herself exactly what context they were all living in.The more it changes the more it stays the same.

Passerby, that's a great idea.


Lady GaGa would love to see

Dont mean to offend anyone, but...

Is this a manifestation of our 2500 years of "aryan culture", or 1400 years of "islamic culture", or 32 years of the islamic "republic" rule, or a combination of all above?

A combination of twist, cha cha and belly dancing by bunch of drugged monkeys!

Good point, David!

Such crazy manifestation of emotions can only indicate how jacked up their psyche must be--which I think is due largely to the absence of women.



by yolanda on

The drummer is great!

The dancer tried to combine dance, gymnastics, and trapeze in one! LOL!

This is another side effect of keeping human animal species segregated.

Instead of snake dance, Lur men are dancing

by Anahid Hojjati on

I have vague memories of watching old men getting snakes dance and other ajayeb in meydani in Brujerd more than 40 years ago. I guess now there must be shortage of snakes or they have become animal lover so instead they use men to do weird dances to entertain crowds. As you see audience is not surprised by it either. As if, it is something they are used to seeing.

Bizarre :)))

by Jahanshah Javid on

Looks like they have been influenced by Cirque du Soleil and pole dancing :)


What in the Name of ...?

by aaminian on

This seems like something that came out of my weirdest dreams, if ever! What do you call this?  Is this supposed to be copy-catting a Western-style dance? 

Regression to oblivion, maybe?!  Sad, nevertheless...
