Silk Road Fusion movement art developed by Susanna Akhverdova, is a format that offers a full range of expression from traditional Silk Road themes to devotional, contemporary dance and eurhythmy. Class always begins with a set of movement rituals aimed at preparing the mind, body and heart for an integrated and holistic dance experience.

We like to work in smaller ensembles.
Each session incorporates intensive contemporary inspired warm-ups focusing on spirals in the body, fluidity in the spine, contract/release, and getting the blood flowing. These sequences are Susanna's signature "warm up dances," which many of her students regard as the highlight of classes.
Persian, or other Central Asian dance techniques as well as creative interpretations of traditional themes, will culminate in short combinations and/or choreography. This format integrates numerous styles of dynamic turns essential to all Central Asian dance forms.

“How did the rose ever open its heart and give to the world all its beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light against its being.
Otherwise, we’d all remain too frightened.”
