Hello, All,
Konnichiwa, minasa,

I will organize Japanese classical dance for Japan-America Society on 8/3 at 7:00.

Let's learn something new and interesting together!

I am looking forward to seeing you there.


Ms. Chizuko Matsumoto is the director of the Hanayagai dance Academy. She has long been active performing classical dance numbers on various stages, teaching classical and folk dance in Austin, and holding many recitals over years. Master "Rokumizu" (Buyo name) Hanayagi will demonstrate and teach us a basic dance performed to the famous tune "Sakura Sakura" (cherry blossom) in this workshop.

Japanese classical dance( Nihon buyo) workshop

You will learn the followings:
- How to use a Japanese fan (Sensu)
- Basic postures, movement and gestures of Japanese classical dance (Nihon Buyo)
- Basic dance steps for the famous and classical tune "Sakura Sakura".

Things to remember when dancing:

Always stand straight. -Do NOT slouch When walking, slide feet along the floor.

Do not lift feet. Keep knees bent, while keeping the entire foot on floor.

When instructed to bend knees, lift the heel of the back foot slightly.

In Nihon-Buyo dancers do not smile. All emotions are conveyed through motions, eyes and head movements. Unless holding something, your hand should be straight, fingers together and thumb tucked tightly against hand.
