DANCE | 'Scent of Spring' 

Spring is on the way, and St. John Fisher College, International Culture & Arts Network, and Biodance are teaming up to celebrate with "Scent of Spring" to commemorate Nowruz, the Persian New Year. The free event this Saturday features both regional and international artists. Montreal dance outfit Simorgh will perform dances native to Khorasan and Kurdistan, while Rochester's own Biodance will bring a hybrid of Persian, African, and Arab dance to the stage. Ithaca-based Oud player Dara Anissi will bring his band to play music that also features the ney-anban, a Persian relative of the bagpipes, and the drum called the daf. "Scent of Spring" will also host cultural presentations from Iran, Turkey, and Central Asia.

"Scent of Spring" will take place on Saturday, March 17, at St. John Fisher College's Cleary Family Auditorium in Kearney Hall, 3690 East Avenue. 2 p.m. Free. 385-8000.;
