Outstanding experience to appreciate traditional Japanese dance

Reviewed by: MMM, 2018/06/19

As a ballroom dancer, I was interested in learning about traditional Japanese dance. This activity provided an excellent cultural experience that gave an appreciation for the skills required to really perform the dance correctly and beautifully.

First we were dressed in a kimono - a cultural experience itself! Then the master showed us how to properly hold the fan, the basic walk, posture and stance. Finally she showed us a portion of a dance that gave us a chance to actually try to dance.

While the master did not speak much English, our guide interpreted as we went along so it was never an issue.

Prepare to work and get sweaty! The master went easy on us but a real student of this dance has to pay attention to every detail and nuance.

I got exactly what I hoped to get - a little bit of an understanding and appreciation for this highly skilled art form. Highly recommended.
