Intensive Workshops on Chap-e-Sarhad

About Chap-e-Sarhad:

It's a dance of the highlands of Baluchistan
Every move has a meaning
The moves become gradually more difficult, with built in warm-up and cool-down
The repetetive nature of the dance makes it meditative 

Join Our Patreon Campaign

IPA is dedicating all its resources to archiving and sharing the currently accumulated knowledge, mostly extending the eastern part of Iran (Torbat-e-Jam, Birjand, Baluchistan, Sistan) and presenting it through instructional and informative videos on Patreon. Join our patreon campaign and with a monthly donation/subscription, help us further our goal at uncovering, preserving, and celebrating the diverse cultures of Iran through dance and music. You can learn from the comfort of your own home, with little time committment, and as we expand our reach, we will come to your communities for workshops and performances. Our Patreon Campaign is scheduled to launch on August 3rd, 2019. You will be able to click from here, and reach our patreon page directly from this page.
