Tokyo Rhythm Theater of 2009

One of Tokyo's major tap performance events is Tokyo Rhythm Theater, an evening of tap dancing and comedy sketches. Produced by Kaoru Tomita and Hideaki Anada, Tokyo Rhythm Theater features an ensemble cast recruited from Tokyo's best tap dancers. I direct and stage the overall show, create ensemble choreography, write some comedy material and dance, of course. If you are planning to be in Japan this October. I hope you can join us for an entertaining evening.
