For 30 years, Shunojo Sensei has taught and performed Japanese classical dance through his school, the Fujima Ryu of Chicago. Now, as an artist in residence of the JASC, he offers instruction in shinbuyo ("new dance" performed to Japanese enka music) and minyo (folk dance). Workshops will first focus on minyo, with its simple, repeated dance patterns, and will progress to the more complex shinbuyo style, which reflects the narrative quality of enka songs. Two-week session.
