My name is Tara Manzari, I’m 19 years old and I’ll be a sophomore at UMBC for the 2018-2019 school year. I’m currently studying biochemistry and music with plans to go on to medical school. I love Persian dance and am both honored and excited to be working alongside Elica jaan this year, which I hope will be the first of many. I’ve been dancing since I could remember, and I’m truly excited to be getting a chance to be teaching it. I love dancing, writing, playing violin and traveling. I’m ecstatic to be teaching, meeting, and working with all the dancers this year. I can’t wait to see what we’re going to do.
My name is Elica Semnani, I’m 18 years old, and I will be a freshman at Montgomery college where I will be majoring in Government and Politics.
