Join us Sachiyo Ito for the special Workshop this spring!

Participants will learn the basics of Japanese classical dance, repertories of 19th century Kabuki dance, and are introduced to two Japanese poetry forms of Haiku and Renku (linking verses), as well as learning how to dress Yukata/Kimono, and more about Japanese culture.

Dance and poetry share common practice that relies on observation, attentiveness, and awareness in the moment. To help these skills, a walking meditation will begin each session to reach a stillness and awareness of self. Each session will end with a theme for a homework assignment to compose a short poem. Also, participants have a chance to share dance and poetry as a public component.

The goal is to enjoy sharing dance and poetry of Japan as well as learning about the Japanese culture, and to create a communal art of dance and poetry inspired by the Japanese tradition. 

The artist is a participant in SU-CASA program, supported by the public funds from New York City council. Recipient of Foreign Ministers Award, Sachiyo Ito founded and leads the only dance school and professional performing company in New York City that specializes both in Japanese classical dance as well as contemporary works based on traditional aesthetics and styles. The company received the City’s proclamations for its founding at the 30th anniversary in 2011. For the last 50 years Ito has introduced Japanese culture in United States, educating, inspiring and entertaining through the grace and beauty of Japanese dance.

Importantly, movements are designed for less stressful use of knees.

Also, private viewing video link to recording of the dances to be taught, links to Sachiyo Ito’s dances will be sent to participants via email.

Dear Friends, Happy New Year!

We at Sachiyo Ito and Company wish you all good health and peace for the New Year.

We would like to invite you to two online presentations in the first month of 2021.

First, join us for the upcoming streaming of Salon Series No.68 on Sunday, January 31, 2021, at 3pm EST, “Symbolism of Snow”.

Taking the symbolism of snow, the Salon Series No.68 will be offered to herald in the snowy season and to welcome a new season of unity into the world.

Snow is a popular theme in the Japanese traditional arts, poetry, music, and dance, often symbolizing the ephemeral quality of love, as it melts away. This symbolism is central to the 18th Century Kabuki dance, Heron Maiden, to be performed by Ito. An improvisation of poetry, music, and dance by the guest artists, including international musician, Kaoru Watanabe, vocalist Beth Griffith, Russian dancer Julia Kulakova as well as Dancejapan Ensemble, will culminate the program. Each dancer will choose a poem of their culture referencing snow, and using reverence to nature as a springboard, each dancer offers their interpretation of the theme. We wish to send a message that each human being is as precious and unique as each individual snowflake, and yet similar in essence beyond differences in race, ethnicity, and culture.

To watch, please visit our website: dancejapan.com for the link. The link will be announced by January 24. Also we will send you a reminder with the link.

The link will be active for 24 hours.

Second, we invite you to view “Beat of the Boroughs, NYC Online” featuring Sachiyo Ito.

“Beat of the Boroughs, NYC Online” was created and sponsored by the Center for Traditional Music and Dance in response to the pandemic. Originally broadcast on November 31, 2020, the link below will lead you to the talk/demonstration/dance and creative-work interview episode with Dancejapan’s artistic director, Sachiyo Ito.

*Salon Series: Japanese Performing Arts*

The Salon Series is an on-going series of performances and lecture-demonstrations on Japanese performing arts held three times a year. With world-class guest artists and speakers, the program has inspired NY audiences for the last 2 decades, 2019 will be the 23rd season of the series.

Streaming is free, but your generous donations will help us continue streaming our programs in 2021, and will be greatly appreciated.

本年、伊藤さちよ舞踊団は創立38周年を迎えることができました。これもひとえに多くの皆様方の温かいご支援の賜物とお礼申し上げます。
お陰様で主宰者伊藤さちよは47年間、米国にて公演教授活動を続けることが出来ました。
 
伊藤さちよ舞踊団はSachiyo Ito and Company 非営利法人団体として1981年の創立以来日本舞踊、文化を通してNY Community に人種を越えての理解、親善の為、ご奉仕のコミュニティサービスを提供してきました。
私達の最大の願いは慈善の公演やワ-クショップが 実り”Making Difference “ し、実際に社会、世界平和へ繋がる事です。
