New to the Main Stage at Sakura Sunday on April 17th is the wonderful traditional Japanese-style dance group IchiFuji-kai!
Led by Helen Moss, a master of the elegant Soke Fujima style of dance, their style is similar to the dance of Kabuki theatre. In the 300 year history of Soke Fujima, the Grandmasters have choreographed numerous well-known Kabuki theatre classics. Ms. Moss has extensive experience in teaching this dance style all over the New York area and beyond. She has given workshops and lecture demonstrations on Japanese culture and dance, as well as artist-in-residency series of workshops at Lafayette College.
IchiFuji-kai Dance Association is a non-profit organization that represents the Soke Fujima dance style in the New York area.
IchiFuji-kai will perform on Sakura Sunday’s main stage at 2:00pm, and will be holding an audience workshop in Matsuri Village at 3:45pm at Sakura Sunday.
