Cherry Blossom Week: Dancing Machines

     Included in the lineup of events is a segment of dance called Nihon Buyo.  Translated, it means “Japanese Classical Dance”.  The performance, one of the few forms of Japanese art not reflecting everyday life, is a mix of drama, dance and music.  This is the time to get dolled up with flawless makeup and decked out in rare silks.  Men, women and children can all take the stage to take part in this modern form of expresssion.  Here are clips.
