Japanese classical dance, Nihon buyo, is a performing art that grew out of and is very
similar to the dance of Kabuki, known for the stylization of its drama and the elaborate
make-up worn by some of its performers. This Japanese classical dance can be performed
by either men or women. We will join the class wearing a Japanese Yukata (summer
kimono), provided during the time of the lesson.
IchiFuji-kai Dance Association performs and teaches Soke Fujima dance, an elegant 300-
year-old traditional Nihon buyo still being performed today in Kabuki theatres. IchiFuji-kai
has been the New York branch of the Soke Fujima-ryu for 50 years. The main instructors
are Fujima Konishiki, Fujima Nishikino, Fujima Nishikiyo, and Fujima Nishiki-mie. For
