Ritmos Dance Lesson

I go to the gym for my daily workout.  One of my favorite lessons is a dance fitness “Ritmos” there. The pictures are here.   Ritmos consists of eleven different kinds of dances such as Hip Hop, Latin, Jazz, Reggaeton, and so on in an hour.  The songs used in it are all popular and so cool.   They change every three months.  Now my most favorite song in it is “Bailando”.  I like Sean Paul ❤

 

Collaboration between Kumamon and Hatune Miku

The Hatune Miku version of “Kumamon Dance” was released this month.    Miku just sings the theme song.   I want her to dance with Kumamon.   Kumamon is very good at dancing.    His dancing looks very cute.   I wonder who the man inside the stuffed suit is.   For your information, Miku sings the song of Bon Dance Festival of Koshi City in Kumamoto.   Additionally, Kumafes that I mentioned before will be held this year again.    Kumamoto might be a unique place.

Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” Concert

Kumafes Report, Part 7

The concert was held after the dance.     Unfortunately I couldn’t see it , but  found a good video on YouTube.   It was absolutely hilarious.   Please watch a dancing yellow-man appears in the middle of a song.   I can’t restrain my laughter.   I remember the man and smile over it.   His facial expression was wonderful!!!

Additional information
I let my friend watch the video and after I asked her impression of it.   She said  “Sorry,  it’s an unknown world and incomprehensible to me.  I don’t know what to say.”    I was surprised  there are people who exists that don’t  feel anything toward a  video which I think is really funny.   In addition, what surprised me most was  the man turned out to be Hinausa, who was in the previous post.

Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” Hip Hop Dance

Kumafes Report, Part 6

The next performance was a Hip Hop dance by HIGOm@tic.   They were very skillful dancers.    I know how hard it is to memorize  dance moves and move quickly to the rhythm of Hip Hop music.    But I’m sorry to say that the supporter’s  weird dance attracted my attention.   I ‘m used to seeing  Hip Hop instructors dance at the fitness club.     For me, dancing by myself is more fun than watching Hip Hop dances.   In fact, I went to the fitness club and did a Hip Hop  workout today.   Middle-aged ladies are dancing vigorously in the day time!

Japanese Anime Festival”Kumafes”Pretty Cure

Kumafes Report, Part 5

After the Japanese dance, “Teizoku Kigekidan” appeared on the stage.   How should I translate their name?  Low Comedy Duo?   Their names are  Hinausa and BurenD.   Their performance were great!!!   They made the audience roar with laughter.   I became a fan of Teizoku.    I heard they are Itasha owners.  Look at their dance!   Especially pay attention to Hinausa,  the rabbit-man on the right.   What a funny man!   How can he move so sharply?

The song was the theme song of Pretty Cure(PreCure).  This anime is very popular with little girls.   Little girls must have been disappointed that it wasn’t a real PreCure show.

The following video is more exciting.   Teizoku and the supporters did the unique dance called “Otagei”.  Don’t miss it!

Look!   They can jump incredibly high!

I think you want to watch  the full version of Hinausa’s dance.  OMG!  Hilarious!

Japanese Anime Festival “Kumafes” One Piece

Kumafes Report,  Part 2

After seeing the Itashas, I went to a dance show.   There were several dance performances on the stage.   The first performer was “Grand 12Gradan” dressing up (cosplay) as the characters of  “One Piece”.   One Piece is a very popular cartoon in Japan.

New Flamenco Costume

Recently, I danced wearing the costume I bought in Tokyo.   How do I look?     At first, I hesitated to buy such a showy dress because I’m not good at flamenco yet.  But I changed my mind.  I should start from the style.  This dress seems to be for a ballroom dance, but whatever is OK.  A woman in the mirror is my teacher.

A series of articles about Kumafes,  the festival of Japanese pop culture, will start from the next.   Please look forward to it!
