Dancing for JAPAN 2014


The Benefit Dance Concert for the Tohoku Pacific earthquake and Tsunami Relief on May 7th.

I’ve been asking myself, as a Japanese national living overseas, how to really help them. Hopefully this benefit concert presented by both established and emerging Japanese dance artists from New York will convey the love and support to the devastated victims.

Furthermore this benefit concert will help create support by having the participating Japanese artists display their work and share their sorrows and hope for the victims. This would be so meaningful for us as Japanese artists living in New York to unite our hands and spread the word across the world.

I will present a silent auction with this benefit concert in May 7th 2014, and the profits from this event will be contributed to Japan through NPO JaNet Earthquake Relief Fund*.
