Energetic Modern Japanese Dance for Teens and Kids


Your child will learn an energetic modern Japanese dance called Yosakoi (Yo-sah-koi) which means, “Good World Has Come.”

It is an annual dance festival originated in the instructor Akari's hometown, Kochi, Japan after the Second World War to encourage the town’s spiritual and economic recovery. Yosakoi united people and generated new hope.

Today, 15,000 dancers from all walks of life dance for four consecutive days in the month of August. Each dance group can have up to 150 dancers and can have its own music, choreography, and costume. The whole town becomes a festival venue. Akari grew up being a part of the festival.
