Hello, I am Mizuki Nanaougi. I am a member of “Nanaougiryu”, a traditional school of classical Japanese dance. The school was first established in Yokohama and was named by Katsu Kaisyu, who was active through the Edo period until the Meiji period. Since then, the school has been operational. Many types of Classical Japanese dance were based on movements seen in Kabuki. On stage, classical Japanese dance is performed wearing a uniform that is very similar to a Kabuki uniform. I’ve made a trial lesson so that tourists can experience the traditional Japanese culture of classical performance, the trial comes with explanations so that people can understand it more clearly. I am teaching younger generations this one, traditional type of classical Japanese dance, “Nanaougiryu”, in hopes to keep it prosperous.
