Sakura is a professional dance troupe based in New York City specializing in Japanese dance.
We develop works that creatively explain historic Japanese culture and introduce traditional dance to new audiences.
The result is a mix of traditional Japanese dance and Western dance styles that create an entirely new form of Japanese dance- very popular with the youth in Japan today.
We provide wholesome entertainment for various events and functions.
In addition to several different dances, we also provide lovely kimono costumes changes, audience participation and live or recorded music accompaniment.
Additional Entertainment available upon request
