Japanese Folk Dance | Felicity House

Japanese Folk Dance

On March 6th, 2018 Felicity House had the pleasure of hosting a performance with The Japanese Folk Dance Institute of New York.

The dances, handed down from generation-to generation, originated from the daily rituals  of people in local Japanese communities.

The dances were organized to represent the different seasons, each dance taking place in front of a unique background. As the audience watched the dancers seamlessly move from winter to spring, the host explained the symbolism and gave demonstrations about how to wear the garments.
