The Aftab Dance Group is a student run Iranian dance group that has been performing at various cultural events in the Boston area for over ten years. The group dances to various styles that range from traditional to more modern.
The name “Aftab” is a Farsi word that means Sun. Our name was spontaneously created before the first performance when the MC of the show asked us for the name of our group. One of the original members looked up at the sun which was emerging through the rain and clouds, felt it was very applicable to us, and subsequently named the group on the spot!
This year the performers consist of: Niusha Aghdaii, Roxy Pirnia, Dina Ghiassian, Marzieh Haghighi, Kimia Kordestani, Azadeh Griffin, Yalda Rostamnezhad, Sara Nour and Neggin Rostamnezhad.
We are always looking for more members who are excited about and committed to Iranian dancing. We hope to see you at our upcoming shows!
