The Bando School of Japanese Classical Dance is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and was established at the start of the 1800s. Bando Mitsugoro III, who was known to be a master in Nihon Buyo, is the founder of Bando-ryu. The Bando family was originally the proprietor of Morita-za, one of the three theaters approved by the government, during the Edo Period. Therefore, the origin of Bando-ryu style of buyo(dance) comes from Kabuki. Nihon Buyo literally means Japanese dance, ‘Nihon’ meaning Japan and ‘Buyo’ meaning dance. This is a unique opportunity to learn a style of dance that is more than 200 years old.
