The Nikkei Cultural Society of Lethbridge and Area – Minyo Dancers have been dancing since 2011. Minyo Dancing is folk dancing, a more casual and fun dance for all ages. Anyone interested in learning folk dancing is most welcome to join the group.
Thank you for the opportunity to share our cultural dances and to celebrate Canada’s birthday with you.
Their first number is WONDERFUL CANADA, honouring her 150th birthday. The dance movements portray the maple leaf and the grandeur of the mountains in the wide expanse of Canada, as well as the cherry blossoms flowering in Japan.
Their second number is HANABI, meaning fireworks.
Their third number is SAWAYAKA ONDO, which describes the gentle breeze.
