Let's experience Japanese dance in a relaxing atmosphere. You can exercise gently with the graceful movement used in Japanese dance.
Junko (the instructor) will teach a slow yet effective dance exercise called NOSS (Nihon Odori Sports Science). NOSS is not a traditional dance but it is an exercise based on the graceful movement used in Japanese dance. It could be a good start for people who are interested in leaning Japanese traditional dance.
It is designed for all ages but especially beneficial for seniors who want to maintain their strength without stressing their hearts. Japanese dance helps kids concentrate well and coordinate their bodies. Children over 7 years old are welcome.
If you enjoy wearing kimono (or yukata), you are welcome to wear it during the workshop and learn how to move your body while you are wearing it.
Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a pair of socks.
All profits from the workshops will be donated to the Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation. Refund request will be accepted on a case-by-case basis but please consider donating the fee to a good cause instead.
