Come dance with us! Awa Odori is a popular traditional Japanese dance style that comes from Tokushima, Japan. It is a simple, joyful dance that is easy to get hooked on. Thousands of people from all over Japan and around the world go to Tokushima each year to dance and enjoy the festivities.
You don't have to go all the way to Tokushima to experience Awa Odori. Awakko Ren is starting up a monthly dance class that will teach you the music and dance of Awa Odori. Awakko Ren has been dancing Awa Odori around the Bay Area since 2011.
If you're interested, you can come dance with us in next year's Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, next April! It's the 50th anniversary of the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival, so it'll be extra fun event. :D
As the saying goes
You're a fool if you dance, and a fool if you watch, so you might as well dance!
