Is this a dance or a kitsuke?

I have never seen this type of performance...How deep kimono world is... but it is interesting!

I think it is still kitsuke, but what incredible skill and agility.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful video, Shino san. I don;t know kitsuke can be turned into entertainment. The lady is amazing with her hand folded fans :)

I have saved this a long time ago on my youtube list. The same user has another video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMQWRMyh130 with more hints to it being a kitsuke dance :) I don't speak japanese, but I love the first song, yuki tsubaki.. I recognize camellia, but that's it :)

Thanks for comments.
The dancer (a kitsuke school instructor) says you can wear kimono in 2 minutes and obi in 3 minutes if you dance! I will try tomorrow...
