Private and semi-private intensives for serious dance scholars and educators are available.  These intensives are one week long . The training is Monday – Friday 9:30 – 5:30, at total of 30 hours including an exam (the intensives can be spread out over a longer period of time for local students). The student will receive a certificate in Shahrzad Technique for that level upon successful completion of the course and passing the exam.  Teaching certificate in Shahrzad Technique is also available upon completing an additional 12-hour workshop.


Shahrzad Persian Dance Technique consists of 3 levels:
Level I – Introduction to Shahrzad Persian dance technique – an in-depth study of the fundamental principles of Persian dance including technique, musicality, history, notation, and dynamic expression.
Level II – Intermediate Shahrzad Persian dance technique – this intensive build on of level I, introducing more complex movement patterns and transitions.
Level III – Advanced Shahrzad Persian dance technique – challenging the student with dynamic movement patterns and transitions and movement composition, this level prepares dancers for performing Shahrzad’s style of Persian dance.  Dancers who complete this level may be asked to join Shahrzad’s company.

Every student must begin with Level I intensive.

Accommodations during the week-long intensive are offered as an option.
