Free Bon Odori Dance Classes with Yoshinojo Fujima of Shubukai

Thursday, July 7th, 14th, 21st 

Japanese Culture Center | 6:30pm – 8:00PM

Shubukai is honored to collaborate with Kimiei Fujima Sensei from Shizuoka, Japan and Ageha Bijou Sensei from the Nihon Bon Odori Association to provide seven Bon Odori for the 2022 Bon Fest Chicago. The dances planned for this year are: Shizuoka Meguri, Shizuoka Ondo, Tanko Bushi, Tokyo Ondo, Sado Okesa, Zundoko Bushi, and Hanagasa Ondo.

Bon Odori is made for people to come together to honor their ancestors, express their joy, respect, and feeling of community; to feel a connection with their ancestors and with everyone. One does not have to be a professional dancer, the dances are simple and fun.

Join the in person class and learn with Yoshinojo Fujima of Shubukai!

Each lesson will focus on two or three dances. Make sure to wear comfortable clothing; Yukata is not required.

Pdf illustrations for all the dances will be available for you to use and review with registration. Please register to ensure you get additional information after the class!
