KSU YOSAKOI ENTERTAINS CHILDREN & PARENTS AT SUNSET ZOO
Yosakoi danced for families at Manhattan’s Sunset Zoo on Sunday, October 28, 2007. The performance was part of the zoo’s Halloween event, Sunset Zoo SPOOKtacular.
Eight members performed three high-energy dances: “The Yosakoi Soran,” “Yocchore,” and “Nengara-nenjyu.” Club Director Seiji Ikeda explained the origin and meaning behind yosakoi dancing and quizzed the children in the audience about some aspects of Japan.
The group also gave viewers a quick lesson over “Nengara-nenjyu,” allowing the crowd to dance along on the final song!
The KSU Japanese Yosakoi Dance Club does many performances in the Manhattan community every semester. If you’re interested in having Yosakoi dance for an event, please contact our Director, Seiji Ikeda (firstname.lastname@example.org) or our President, Cami Riblett (email@example.com).
