2012.8.12 【sold out 】 A Workshop on Japanese Traditional Dance(Nihon Buyo)  日本舞踊 中村流「梅の手習ひ」

A workshop to experience Kabuki Dance (Japanese traditional dance) will be held on August 12th. Beginners will learn to dance one of the basic songs of Nihon Buyo, Japanese traditional dance.

Nihon Buyo is danced wearing a kimono. Shamisen music forms the base of the music, and it is enhanced with song and narration to create the scenes and stories. Character's feelings are expressed through costumes and choreography appropriate to the scene.

Nihon Buyo can be divided into Edo (Tokyo) dance, mainly Kabuki Dance, and Kamigata Dance. While Kabuki Dance is extroverted and danced with pronounced rhythm, Kamigata Dance is introverted and danced with slower rhythm to express emotions. In this workshop, you will experience Kabuki Dance by practicing one full song.

In the Nakamura styled Kabuki Dance, the master will explain the meaning of the dance during the lesson. You will learn the dance while receiving explanations such as, "These lyrics here are a play on words," and "These lyrics mean such and such, so it has to be danced with flair."
