Except for on-going Online Traditional Japanese Dance Classes, today three other online classes completed the scheduled program on September 12th. We were worried about the online between Japan & New York but it workd well!
677 cumulative total participants came to the Online JPA Summer Classes in the three-month scheduled period! Thank you!
We are planning to have another online classes starting at the end of Fall 2020 for the preparation of two big events next year: Japan Day Parade (Tentative Schedule: 5/9/2021 Mother's Day), and JPA Free Festival on Governors Island (Summer 2021). We will provide a little more advanced classes next time to brush up on your dance skills! Of course we welcome new commers for the classes as well!
We will announce more details on our next online class information at our website, Facebook page, and Instagram!

Today JPA is regrettably announcing that we have decided to cancel our Kimono Exhibition (2 months) & Big Three Bon Odori Festival (one day) on Governors Island scheduled this year and move the event dates to 2021 because of this unprecedented situation. We look forward to having our events on Governors Island again next year and see you there with big smiles!
We have been practicing the dances of Japan's Big Three Bon Odori online and will continue until the day we can start rehearsing at the studios. Please join our sessions if you would like to dance with us next year!
