Audiences enjoyed dances, slide presentation by Shahrzad Dance Academy and two Iranian community groups volunteered to participate in the Nowruz program this year. They are Farsi Literature group who meets monthly at the Fremont library and Danesh Novin School which is a group of parents who have been organizing Farsi classes for Iranian American kids for the last 19 years in Fremont area. There were dance performances by students from Danish Novin School and poetry reading by two members of the Farsi Literature group.
