Sakura is the Japanese word for ‘Cherry Blossoms’.
Thirty dancers including seven children will wear breathtaking, original Kimonos while delighting the audience with traditional Japanese dances. Teacher, choreographer, art director and leader Junko Thomson has fused together a variety of traditional styles to create a unique and yet authentic Japanese cultural experience.
The Sakura Dance Group is a non-profit organisation based on the Gold Coast. Their aim is to spread the awareness of Japanese culture and history through traditional Japanese dance. The Sakura Dance Group performs regularly at cultural events, schools, churches, aged-care centres and charity functions.
This event is presented in conjunction with the Australian Creative Exchange exhibition Meeting Place: The Asian Century.
