Message from the Board of Directors of Nihon Buyo Kai of California

During these difficult months of social distancing, the members of the Nihon Buyo Kai Board of Directors have been meeting virtually, greatly encouraged by your support and donations.

Our virtual meetings have been focused on ways to present to you an educational and entertaining program of Nihon buyo, which is our organization’s mission. For this year, we have curated a virtual performance with four previously recorded dances featuring the members of the Bando and Wakayagi Schools, including the late Madam Bando Mitsuhiro. The dances are celebratory, comical, and dramatic, and represent different musical styles. We hope you will enjoy this program, which will be available for viewing on our website for one week only, from October 17 to October 23, 2021, at no charge to all who watch; however, we greatly appreciate donations of any size.

Please visit other tabs on our website to see the latest news and updates, the “Gallery” to see photos from past events, and the “In Memoriam” page on which we honor past Nihon buyo trailblazers.

In our initiative to be more inclusive and expand the Board of Directors, we are pleased to announce two new Board members, Stephany Nakamura and Mika Yokota, who bring a wealth of knowledge, talent, enthusiasm, and ideas.
