It is with great pleasure and honor that we announce the second Dance Collective concert. What might have remained just a singular sensation has turned into a sequel of sorts due to the overwhelmingly positive response from the participants and attendees of last year’s event.

Many of you came out to support not only the extraordinarily talented and hardworking dancers and choreographers who graced the stage, but also the message behind the show: that of creating a strong, vibrant and cohesive dance community in which everyone could participate.

So here we are with another diverse show, excited to continue building upon that message.

This show features a range of new and established dancers and choreographers from Island Dance Academy, Paradise Performing Arts Center, Center Stage Dance Alliance, N2 Dance, and UH Hilo Dance department to name but a few. The proceeds from this event will go toward providing dance opportunities for our island community and perpetuating this event.

For those who came last time, we hope to see you again. For everyone else, we hope that you will join us in this year’s Dance Collective!

Enjoy a performance of traditional Japanese arts performed by Shamisen Master Goshiro Kineya. Become enchanted as you hear delightful Japanese melodies and the theatrical music of Kabuki traditions performed by 60+ artists from Japan on traditional instruments: Shamisen, Koto, Shakuhachi, and Yokobue (Japanese flute). Experience the grace and beauty of classical Japanese dance performed to live music. The artists, from all parts of Japan, are excited to share the traditions and culture of Japan with audiences in Hawai‘i. Mr. Kineya hopes that sharing these time honored practices will contribute, in a small way, to fostering a vibrant cultural exchange between Japan and the US, in particular Hawai‘i. He says, “Thank you for this opportunity and we look forward to seeing you all!”
