Come dance, tour, and eat with us!
JAPAN TOUR I - October 2021
We have been talking about this idea for several years, as we have travelled together across Japan.
“Wouldn’t it be great if we had some fun people traveling with us, giving them a chance to dance with
fantastic Japanese dancers, eat amazingly delicious food plus get to see some historically important
cultural places?” We said it enough times that, finally, March 2021, we have decided to go for it.
Fusae is a great expert in her native, Japanese culture. She is well respected and she is very experienced
in traveling in Japan. Add Ahmet’s experience for organizing tours (since 1987), and this will be a great
opportunity for people who like to travel and dance. Ahmet will be teaching from his wonderful repertory
of Turkish dances, at stops along the way and during a day dance workshops in places like Himeji.
There will also be International dance party opportunities.
The tour will start on March 3rd in Tokyo.
This means you will depart from your home town on March 2nd, 2021.
And you will leave from Tokyo on March 13th, 2021 (You will arrive in US the same day).
***There is an extension opportunity in the end of the Tour for those who are interested***
