Every Thursday (well, almost) I have Japanese Fan Dancing (日本舞踊) class, usually followed by Taiko. (This week, Taiko is cancelled as most ALTs are still off Iki.) I’m terrible at it, not least because I, apparently, move like a man. It doesn’t help that my Japanese is still マーマー –just okay. Still, it’s a lot of fun, I get to wear a yukata once a week, and I get a good solid dose of Japanese culture.
Here, Graceful-sensei teaches two students a new dance. These two students also happen to be two of my students at one of the middle schools on the island.
