Hungry to learn something new? Shofuso’s dance tasters are a great way to experience both classical and folk dance styles of Japan. Meet the instructors, get an introduction to the styles and learn more about our dance classes.
A Taste of Kabuki Dance
Get an introductory classical Japanese dance lesson, open to anyone from 10 to 80. Meet our instructor, Fujima Nishiki-no, with assistant dancer Yoshiko Furuse (below), and see a demonstration of male and female-style dance. Then we’ll put on yukata, learn to walk, and how to open a fan. We’ll begin to learn a very simple dance that can be continued in the first lesson of the semester. No previous dance experience is necessary.
