Sara

Edina, MN

Sara was born and grew up in the revolutionary Iran where public dancing was banned by the Islamic Republic. As a result, she grew up in a world of underground dance and came to associate dancing not only with joy and passion, but with freedom and resistance. As a child, she danced not only to Iranian tunes but sometimes to Bollywood dance videos! Ever since she has left Iran, she has dabbled in many forms of dancing and fitness but nothing has resonated as much as BollyX!

What she likes most about BollyX is its inclusivity and its uniting of Eastern and Western dance styles. She looks forward to sharing this wonderful form of dance and exercise with people of all backgrounds. She believes that people can shake off bad moods, bad social structures, and perhaps bad governments when they find the joy of dancing inside!

BollyX member since September 2021
