Dance WS “Dance to ‘Shunpuu’ with Chieko” (Workshop Full)

Get ready to move to Kodo One Earth Music track “Shunpuu” with Kodo’s queen of dance, Chieko Kojima. Chieko will teach you the fun choreography she created especially for this EC workshop, which focuses on expressive hand and arm movements and dancing with a folding fan. Shunpuu means “spring breeze” and, like Chieko, it’s a breath of fresh air! Let the lively taiko beats and flutes whisk you away into Chieko’s feel-good world of dance.

Please take a look at the final collaborative video with the participant from around the worldhere!
