What we're about

We are Zen 燃 Yosakoi - a fun and social Japanese dance group in Melbourne!
*Scroll down for Japanese. 日本語は下へ。

Every week we learn and practise different forms of Yosakoi Soran, a traditional Japanese dance. It's quite fun and good exercise, you'd be surprised by how easy it is to learn, too!

The best part is that we perform at cultural events across Melbourne to share our passion for Japanese dance and culture with lots of new people.

The average practice goes:

- introduction and warmup - we introduce ourselves to get to know one another, then limber up!
- Yosakoi practice - we teach new members to join in quickly, then practise to make our performances as professional as possible
- mini rehearsal - towards the end, we do a full run through of the dances and review our progress!

You can join us to try it out if you're not sure, you don't need to be an expert at all! We have members from all walks of life including students, working holiday makers, young professionals and international friends.

All you need to bring is:
- a pair of clothes that are easy to move in
- a bottle of water
- a smile!

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Zen family!

Note about RSVPs:

The vast majority of Zen members do not use Meetup, so the RSVPs on events here may look very low! Usually about 20 members turn up to each practice, so you definitely won't be the only one!
