In 2011 we introduced a new performance and invited the public to join in the fun: A Japanese Obon Dance.
The Denver Buddhist Temple Minyo Kai dancers are returning for CDBF 2012, so watch the video above, and plan on joining us in front of the Main Performing Arts Stage at 6 pm Saturday July 28!
Think of it as Japanese line dancing, only in a circle instead of lined up side-to-side. Best of all, you don’t need to know any dance moves in advance, and you don’t need to wear any fancy kimonos or traditional outfits. You can, but it’s not required.
