Tetsu Taiko was drumming to the beat of the music. A great combination!

World Umbrella Dance will feature Shiamak Vancouver (Shabop!)

It’s not too late to join the World Umbrella Dance  We have two rehearsal dates left:

  • Monday April 8th  6.45pm-7.45pm at the Roundhouse (Tonight)
  • April 12 in Kitsilano

In case you were wondering: yes, it’s possible to learn the choreography in one hour. I am the living proof! Before I headed to the rehearsal at Nikkei Centre last month, I had looked at the video on youtube but didn’t practice much. And I was still able to learn the dance in one hour!

Come to Roundhouse tonight 6.45pm-7.45pm and join the dance  (you can buy your umbrella on site or online).

Saturday, April 13, hundreds and hundreds of dancing umbrellas will perform to “Shabop” on the Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza accompanied by Tetsu Taiko.
