Japanese Butoh classes with Judith Kajiwara: 6-week dance series at OACC

For those of you interested in learning Butoh, the expressive modern Japanese dance style, the Oakland Asian Cultural Center is offering a rare series of workshops with renowned Butoh dancer, Judith Kajiwara, in the new year. 



Every Thursday, January 5 – February 9, 2012 6:30pm-8:00pm $60.00 per person for the entire series

Learn and explore fundamentals of Butoh with Judith Kajiwara, Oakland Asian Cultural Center's 2011/2012 Artist in Resident. Butoh is a slow-motion, focused improvisational dance form that originated in Tokyo, Japan in the late 1950's. 

Each class will focus on a specific element of Butoh dance. You'll increase your capacity to express from your inner awareness as you work individually and in an ensemble. Wear comfy, loose clothing and be prepared to dance in bare feet.

EVERYONE regardless of age or ability is welcome, and will be taught in a comfortable space that honors everyone's dance.
