Let's dance like a maiko!

As one of my kimono club activities for summer, we planned a Japanese dance lesson. It was for fun but the really serious thing, since we invited professional dance teacher!

What we lesseoned was Gion Kouta, a maiko's song who longed for her secret love. You can see real Gion Kouta here, real maiko and geisha dancing. Ours may be similar!
