The Ballet, Dance of Nature, Sound of Creation, was created for this celebration of Norooz. With choreography by Sharlyn Sawyer of Ballet Afsaneh and music composed by Mohammad Nejad of Nejad World Music center, this exquisite dance honors the powerful Goddess Anahita, the Mother Goddess.

In Persian mythology Anahita rules the waters and the fertility of the earth. Her sacred animals are the peacock and the dove. In this performance the ancient icons are portrayed, along with the folk dance of the Gilan region in present day Iran, a region known for its agricultural bounty. The celebration of Norooz marked the first day of the year in historic times. It is a celebration of our renewed hopes, the dream of a world at peace, and in harmony with nature.
