Sakura-Ren is a dancing group performing Japanese traditional Awa-Odori dance.
Sakura-Ren, formed in October 2013, sincerely enjoys performing Awa-Odori all over the San Francisco Bay Area. In 2014, we held 16 performances at Japanese festivals, local schools, churches, and association events. We are a serious Awa-Odori group that puts on choreographed stage performances accompanied by live instruments and vocals. While holding traditional styles in esteem, we keep bringing new and original ideas to Awa-Odori. Many members of Sakura-Ren are very active in performing art fields, and we all put different ideas into Awa-Odori to make it more interesting and exciting.
