Join us and dance Awa Odori! This is a group for anyone, especially beginners, male and female, interested in Japan's lighthearted and fun popular folk dance of four hundred years of tradition, also known as the "Dance of Fools". Our teachers offer lessons (usually at the Palatine Park District). We perform as "Miko-Ren" at cultural events in the Chicagoland area throughout the year. Many of us are beginners, so don't be shy! All skill levels are welcome. The more, the merrier!
