We are very excited to announce that the great musician and dancer, Suzuki Kyosuke, will be coming to the Institute! Suzuki Sensei will give a two-day intensive on lion dance, for which we'll be preparing practice shishi gashira (lion masks) for each participant. The intensive will be 12 hours of instruction and an optional dinner with our favorite lion dancer! Suzuki Sensei will also be teaching two workshops on the music that accompanies the dance, called Kotobuki Jishi.
