from satisfied customers!
. . . I also ordered the Robyn Friend Persian Dance video, and have
been very pleased with the quality of the video
and the work presented. It is a first-rate video.
. . . First of all, many thanks for such a quick response to my recent
order. However, of most importance, thank you for putting together
such a splendid and informative documentary on Iranian Dance.
Before seeing this video, my only knowledge on Iranian Dance was based
on one performance I saw on another dance video. What made your documentary
stand out was the fact that, unlike the "other dance video" I watched,
you took the
time and effort to give an explanation as to what the audience/viewers
were about to see. This made each performance a lot more meaningful
and beautiful -- not to mention the fact that I'm definitely quite a bit
more knowledgeable on Iranian Dance than I was before. Out
of all the dance videos I've purchased to date, yours definitely takes
the "Number One" position. My money was well spent, as I'll
enjoy watching and learning from this video for a long time to come.
. . . I, too, have seen this fabulous video, Dances of Iran, and Robyn
does an excellent, educating and entertaining job.
For those of you in Phoenix, you can see parts of this video on
Phoenix Public Access Channel 98 on the "International Fantasy" tv series
in Nov. on Sundays at 7:30pm.
. . . Just wanted to share with you an exciting time this weekend with
Robyn Friend, one of our fellow listees. She taught a great workshop
on Persian dance at my studio in Winchester, VA. It was a joy to
finally meet her (and her hubbie) and have the wonderful opportunity to
study with her. Her enthusiasm for Persian dance spills over
into everything she does!!! The
funnest part was learning Persian social dance. Now I'm ready
for my next Persian wedding party!!! Robyn also worked with us on
a number of different Persian dance steps, beautiful arm and hand movements,
tiny (special for Persian dance) hip moves, turns and spins. She
had thoughtfully broken down the music for us and as we went through her
notes several times - it really started making sense. Having studied
classical music for over 15 years - she definitely dances "very musically".
There was some talk recently about her video on the list
- it is wonderful - spans many years of her dancing and teaching
career - the sound, and videography are excellent. Great
weekend and workshop!!!
. . . Your costuming is wonderful. I can't wait to show it to my friends
who study middle eastern ME dance.
If I were forced to pick a favorite part (since I loved it all) I'd
pick your version of Kolah Makhmali. Being of Iranian origin, I got a real
kick out of hearing this song again after almost 20 years.
. . . Seeing your video was the greatest moment of my life!
Your video is excellent! It is well done, beautifully performed,
and very nicely presented.
Hello . . . I just wanted to let you know that I received the video
and I absolutely love it! The video format was great, and the dancing
and choreography was incredibly moving and inspiring!
