Learn the basic techniques of singing and dancing from a professional Noh performer and try your hand at Noh acting while wearing a traditional costume and mask. As the goal of this experience is to familiarize you with Noh in a fun, relaxed atmosphere, it makes a perfect first step into the rich world of Noh. Deepen your understanding of Noh and make your next Noh viewing an even more enjoyable one.
