On April 1 Saturday in Los Angeles, I participated in an event called Sakura Ondo CA$H Dance Public Ondo / Bon Odori Cherry Blossom Festival. Even though it was only from 3pm to 4pm, I saw many dances. It was a great experience. I learned about Bon Odori, which is a very famous and traditional dance in Japanese culture. Bon Odori is a form of Japanese folk dancing. Basically it is “line dancing” danced in a circle by a large group of people. By following the Leader, dance steps are repetitive and dancers that do not know the steps to a dance at the beginning will know the steps by the end… No dance experience necessary just the willingness to participate in the spirit of culture and community. I have no dance experience, but I learned the dance quickly.
