The Special Youth course is designed for junior high and high school students who are busy with studies and after-school activities.
Participants attend an intensive 10-lesson, three-month training course taught by professional performers, culminating in a real stage performance. During this period they will not only learn performance skills, but also take part in special activities that look at the appeal of traditional performing arts from multiple points of view. Through a variety of approaches, this course supports you in the process of making friends with tradition.
*The Special Youth course is part of Traditional Performing Arts for Kids. In addition to the Youth Program, there’s the Long Term Lesson, a 16-session, six-month program with a variety of courses to choose from: Noh theater (utai recitation, shimai dance, kyogen comic theater), nagauta hayashi singing and instrumental music (shinobue flute/kotsuzumi small hand drum, otsuzumi large hand drum), shakuhachi and more.
