It was a privilege for my friend, Tamara and I to attend one of her performances, Sunday, March 27th. we were at the Itabashi Bunka Kaikan (板橋区立文化会館大ホール) near the Oyama train station. The program began with a recital with the various students dancing pieces in groups beginning with the youngest group, who were so terribly cute to what you could tell by their grace and level of difficulty, the experienced group. All were showcasing their dancing abilities, whether the traditional ballet dances to the contemporary dances. There was a short intermission and they presented Coppéllia. It was a three hour performance with introductions and program all in Japanese, but it was a very enjoyable evening! Here are some pictures I took throughout the evening.
