"Mai " has a lot of intelligents from Edo period how to feel beauty not only through eyes but from atmosphere and how to use own body bone skeleton by natural way.
We will learn the best way to perform the body without connection to age by sharpening sensibility, feeling bone, body core.

We will proceed the lesson with these points , to gain the method to control your body even if you get ages, to express various emotion and mind from sensitive movement transmitted from core to tips.

We are disturbed by various things everyday. At that time, I spend different time than usual through dancing " Mai", breathing differently from my daily life, feeling a different time from my daily life, being aware of my body different from my daily life, seeing what Ican't see, and listening to the sounds I can't hear.
If everyday life is a time in relation to others, it may be saied that the time to dance lives in my own time. When I'm dancing I feel like I'm everything, but I'm not myself.

When I leave myself to the slowly flow of Jiuta, when I reach out to heaven, when I feel Tanden and breathe, I feel like I'm surrounded by thick air like honey.

In order to tell you that feeling in daily practice, we do not compare with others or do not make a hierarchy in this practice. So that students can concentrate on the practice.
Of course, I am careful not to make the finacial burden a mental burden.
The most important thing is to discover, notice and taste something through the lessons, and to havethem feel such a little fun.

And the goal of the lesson is to exude each person's individuality through a simple dance "Mai". Individuality can never be superior or inferior.

That's what "Mai" means to me.
