Traditional Performing Arts for Kids

Enriching the spirit through learning Japanese traditional arts with leading artists

Practicing traditional arts or keiko, involves more than simply mastering the skills. It is about nurturing traditional sensitivities through established discipline and styles. Traditional Performing Arts for Kids offers children a 17-course hands-on experience in the 4 genres; Noh (utai/shimai/kyogen/hayashi), Nihon buyo, sankyoku (koto/shakuhachi) and nagauta (shamisen/hayashi). Leading performers from each genre instruct the children directly over a 7-month period. At the end of the program, the students will have an opportunity to display what they will have learned in public performances. It will be a precious experience for children to better understand their culture passed down through generations and to know the "Japanese heart".
