National Folklore Organization of Iran


At the beginning of the organization, it was planned that the conservatory would organize its classes for two three-year periods and end its work by creating a group of national and local dances between fifty to sixty people. Aware that there were no singing and music students in most cities, especially in Tehran’s primary schools, they decided to expand the organization’s program and establish an art academy.

School of Art

This school started working every year by accepting a large number of students. At the end of the course, the art graduates were hired by the Ministry of Education after completing the cadre of national and local dance groups. The Academy of Arts was an educational center where students were introduced to the fields of anthems, music, and local dances in a short period of time. After completing the training, these graduates were able to teach local anthem and music to students in primary schools and villages. Those with softer bodies were selected for the Iranian National and Local Dance Conservatory.
