For the first time in over a year we are offering an introductory course teaching some of the forms, aesthetics and context of nihon buyoh. You will learn two short dances as an introduction to female form (onnagata) and male form (otokogata). This class is limited to 6 participants because of the studio size. It is open to dancers, actors and anyone interested in Japanese dance or culture. No previous dance experience is necessary.

Special to this session is that it includes a 2-hour workshop with master dancer Fujima Shōgo who will be here from Japan performing in Yūko-Kai. The workshop fee is included in the registration.

Participants are required to wear tabi (Japanese split-toed socks) or white socks and, if possible, a yukata (cotton kimono). If you have a yukata, but don't know how to put it on - we can teach you!

For more details call 604.607.5978 or contact info(at)tomoearts.org.

WE ALSO OFFER ONGOING PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS...please call or email us for details.
