KSU Yosakoi has been quite busy this past few weeks. Right before Spring Break started we traveled to Salina, KS to perform for the “Women’s History Luncheon” for a women’s group at the Bicentennial Center on March 14, 2008. At this performance we danced, “Soran-Bushi,” “Yocchore,” and “Basara.” “Basara” was specifically picked for this event because it is known as a women’s dance or the dance of the ‘okamisan’ (wife or landlady).
Over the spring break, we had Yosakoi training on March 21st and 22nd. Our schedule went from 9 AM – 12 PM, 2 PM – 5 PM, and 7 PM – 9 PM, with breaks in between. These practice sessions went on for a total of two days of practice. Everyone had a good time doing Yosakoi and improving our dances. Overall, members learned a lot and are better prepared for upcoming April performances and the Japan trip this summer! 🙂
