Nihon Buyou （日本舞踊）draws from Kabuki and also has origins derived
from Noh and Bugaku. Classes will take the principles of odori dance
movement that were introduced in the workshop and go more in depth.
Students are taught individually and will focus on one dance. Training is
based on traditional pedagogy; students are trained in etiquette,
yukata/kimono dress, using the dance fan, and basic Japanese terms used in
dance. Completing the introductory workshop is highly recommended prior
to starting class.
