Aftaab’s Dance workshop will start with a lively Persian dance performance to familiarize the children with the beauty of Persian music, dance, and costume. All the children who are present at the Nowruzgan event are welcome to participate in this workshop and dance together. The children will be encouraged to gather and make a circle to follow the routines with the directors. A few track of traditional/contemporary Persian music (related to the theme of Nowruz) are chosen to be played during the workshop. Ladan will teach different movements and steps of simplified Persian dance to the participants. The children will then follow the steps little by little and at the end of the session they would be able to follow the routines with the complete track  which is played for them. Depending on the time and the children’s interest, the workshop will end with one last solo/duet dance by the performers.
