Classical dance workshop
The Nihon Buyo Foundation is running a classical Japanese dance workshop in English Nov. 27 in Shinjuku, Tokyo. The workshop will be conducted by NBF Director Minosuke Nishikawa V, who hopes that it will give an opportunity to foreigners in Japan to experience a form of dance that has been a part of Japanese culture for nearly four centuries.
Participants will learn how to wear a kimono or yukata and the basic movements of Nihon buyo (steps, gestures and use of props). There may also be an opportunity to perform at a lecture demonstration given by Nishikawa on Dec. 4.
The fee for joining the workshop is 3,000 yen, and this includes a video recording of the buyo repertoire and a cassette tape of buyo music. The NBF requests that participants bring certain items of clothing with them. For more information and to apply, please contact the Nihon Buyo Foundation (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. (03) 3354-5496). The workshop takes place at the Nishikawa School Studio, 8-12 Ichigayadaimachi, Shinjuku Ward.
