Yr 8 Perform Japanese Folk Dance at Assembly

08 November 2023

Yr 8 Japanese students performed a Japanese folk dance called "Soranbushi". It is a fisherman's working song using many movements that represent ocean waves, fishermen pulling in the nets, throwing fish or buckets, and rowing their boats. The words "dokkoisho, dokkoisho", "so ran, so ran" are sung during the dance. The words are used to encourage the fishermen to work harder. The Sylvia Brose Hall erupted in applause and the dance was thoroughly enjoyed by both the audience and performers. Thank you Yr 8 and to Japanese Teacher, Keiko Takahashi for bringing this meaningful performance to Glenaeon!
