Because of the still ongoing state guidelines for an outdoor event within the 200-person range, JPA has to limit the venue capacity each day including the number of our performers & staff.

We will use Eventbrite to secure the participants' booking and we may have to control the number of viewers by our staff members at the site.

The booking starts around the beginning of May!

Because of the still ongoing state guidelines for an outdoor event within the 200-person range, JPA has to limit the venue capacity each day including the number of our performers & staff.  

We will use Eventbrite to secure the participants booking and we may have to control the number of viewers by our staff members at the site.  

The booking starts around the beginning of May!

JPA is announcing a cultural program on Governors Island, "Dance, Music, & Kimono" on the 22nd, 23rd, 29th, 30th, and 31st of May 2021.

(Important Note)
Because of the COVID safety policy, JPA has to limit the venue capacity up to 200 people each day including the number of our performers & staff. We will use Eventbrite to secure the participants' booking and we may have to control the number of viewers by our staff members at the site.

The cultural program has two types of activities. On the 22nd, 29th, and 31st, visitors can enroll and participate in the activities. On the 23rd and 30th, the events are more for viewing such as cultural demonstrations and lectures.

The details of the programs will be posted on Facebook, Instagram and our website. So please check them out!

Please note the following:

1) Those who wish to enroll and participate in the activities are asked to follow the Covid Plan of Governors Island as well as of JPA.
Governors Island’s Plan:
www.govisland.com/visit-the-island

JPA’s Covid Plan includes the temperature check at the Information tent as well as others specific to activities. Please check our web site: japanperformingarts.org/event-on-governors-island-2021/

2) JPA event this year is a cultural program, and unlike the summer festival in 2019, Japanese food vendors are not included in our program. Please bring your own lunch (bento), or purchase some food from Governors Island food vendors or restaurants. 

3) Our program’s venue is only at Nolan Park this year. Please note that there will be no dance performance show at Outlook Hill.

We will be releasing more details of our program towards the end of April! 

We are very much looking forward to seeing you on Governors Island in late May!

New year 2021, has just kicked off!

Last year, JPA had to cancel all the projects except for the online classes. Hopefully we will be able to resume at least a few activities this year. Two of our major plans for this year are 1) participating in the Japan Day Parade in May and 2) conducting a Governors Island Public Program.

Because of the still on-going COVID 19 pandemic, the final details cannot be announced here yet, but we will announce them as soon as we have any updates.

We will be working on another Kimono Project this year. As JPA has been conducting kimono lecture sessions and stage shows since 2013, we plan to expand our efforts to create more projects in order to introduce craftsmanship and many other details of kimono culture.    

japanperformingarts.org/current-programs/jpa-kimono-project/                                    
Our online Awa-odori & Gujo-odori programs are still on-going and the sessions are every Tuesday night. If you are interested in joining these classes for dancing at the Japan Day Parade in 2021, please contact!

2021年、新しい年が始まりました。

昨年、JPAはオンラインクラス以外の全てのプロジェクトをキャンセルしました。今年はいくつかの活動ができる事を願っています。JPAの今年の大きな2つの計画は、ジャパン・パレード(5月)とガバナーズアイランドのパブリックプログラムに参加する事です。状況によりまだはっきりした事はお伝えできませんが、これらのイベントの開催可否が分かり次第お知らせします。

我々のもう一つのプロジェクトに着物プロジェクトがあります。2013年から着物についての様々な知識を、レクチャーや劇場等での着物ショーで紹介してきましたが、今年から更に新しい形で、着物の工芸技術や、着物文化の詳細を紹介する事ができればと考えております。是非ご参加下さい。
