【Awa-odori Dance Group】

Awakko-Ren is a Bay Area dance group founded in 2011.  Its main focus is Awa-Odori, a traditional dance from Tokushima Prefecture on the island of Shikoku.  Awa-Odori is one of the biggest dance festivals in Japan – celebrated in the streets of Tokushima City every August for over 400 years.  The members of Awakko-Ren wanted to form a group for people who loved to dance Awa-Odori.  

We have Awa-odori Dance practice. 
If you are interested in dancing or playing Japanese Ohayashi-Music, please join us.
