    Bon Odori Prep Event           盆踊練習会           

     for Natsu Matsuri        夏祭りのため

    Date/Time: Sunday July 9, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

    Location: EJCA Centre at 6750 88 St., Edmonton

    EJCA is excited to hold our Natsu Matsuri on July 15, 2023. One of the favourite events of this festival, and in Japanese festivals around the world, is Bon Odori, or festival dancing. These dances are simple and repetitive, and fun to do together. We will encourage festival-goers to participate in the dance, but it’s easier to learn if there are people who know the steps already.

    Therefore, if you intend to be at Natsu Matsuri, and would like to be a crowd dance helper, you are invited to a prep event where we will learn the dances. It will be fun and casual, you will not be teaching people during the festival, just leading the way, it’s okay to make a mistake!

    We will learn 2 traditional dances, and 2 which are EJCA favourites. And if there is time, we will learn a special new dance that hasn’t been seen before!

    Refreshments will be served afterwards

    Let's have a fun time together! Please invite your friends.

    場所:   エドモントン日本文化協会、6750 88 St. Edmonton





    終了後、リフレッシュメントをご用意しています❣ ご一緒に楽しい会にいたしましょう。どうぞお友達もお誘いください。
