DANCE to activate the New You! 30 Days of Dance is a journey of discipline and dedication where you deepen your breath, elevate your soul, boost your immune system, and align your heart and mind with your purpose for being alive. This path to embodiment and creativity happens through an exploration of Tai Chi, Persian, Tribal Dance, and Flamenco sequences with an introduction to mystical poetry all set to irresistible grooves from around the world.

Each module of this 4-module journey is an initiation into one of the Four Elements: earth, water, air, and fire.

This course is exhilarating, joyous, sacred, sensual, transformative, communal, and disruptive. Activate the power of dance to ground yourself in PEACE and SURRENDER to the unknown.

Her easeful instruction and welcoming spirit empowers students from all stages of life to feel a true sense of belonging in their bodies and passion in their lives, by integrating wisdom teachings proven throughout the ages.

Dance of Oneness® is the dance I had been waiting to do all my life. From a young age I had danced, read watched and followed Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Joffery Ballet, Margie Gillis, Gabriel Roth and many more than I can name that moved in a way that spoke to me. Dance of Oneness® is the culmination of all that I had been drawn to in the other dance forms which seemed to be missing the main ingredient. Banafsheh has found the missing thread which is the opening to the Beloved, to truly give yourself in movement to the Divine energy that resides and moves through all of us from the Earth and the Heavens. I felt that for the first time in our dancing. It also reintroduced me to my own body, allowed me to accept my imperfections and for the first time in years swim naked in the ocean. All of this and more.

Transformative! Banafsheh skillfully takes us step by step to an experience of dance that brings me deeper into my body, to peace, feeling grounded and open to beauty and to love. Most importantly for me, the process brought me to experience a lovingness toward myself. I appreciate her presence of gentleness and fierce passion, and I’m inspired to bring my best self into my world.
