Do you like to dance? Learn about the traditional Bon dance, bon odori. This is a dance performed during Obon, a period in the summer that commemorates the spirits of one’s ancestors. The Bon Odori is usually danced as a group, in a circle around the yagura, an elevated tower-like stage where drummers and musicians play. This folk dance welcomes the visiting spirits of loved ones to participate in the festive celebration during their brief annual visit to our world. Participants will learn the choreography of this lively dance, and how to perform as a unified group. Please wear comfortable shoes and clothes.
