After completing their training with leading performing artists, children will present a public performance. Authentic professional performances by instructors will also be featured

In“Traditional Performing Arts for Kids,”children learn about traditional culture by experiencing the real thing. About 300 children have trained in Japanese cultural arts over several months, and they will present the results of their work in an authentic way on stage where tradition lives and breathes.
With the children’s serious expressions, powerful professional performances and accessible commentary, these public performances have received praise for being informative as well as great fun. We hope to see you there!
