‚ÄúUnderstanding any art form takes patience and devoted study. Being able to participate in the art form with first-hand instruction and from working professionals is a rare treat. The 2007 Noh workshop held at Georgetown College, coordinated by Michael Rich and taught by members of the Kanze School of Noh in Kyoto, was a once in a lifetime experience. Anyone with an interest in theatre, dance or Japanese culture should take advantage of the 2009 workshop.‚ÄĚ
Shan Ayers, Associate Professor of Theatre, Berea College, 2007 participant.
‚ÄúThe Japanese Noh masters were surprisingly down-to-earth and incredibly kind. I never thought I could learn such a beautiful dance piece in so short a time.‚ÄĚ

“I entered this Noh workshop on a whim, and am so very glad I did.¬† I learned so much about Japanese culture and art beyond the popular forms most Americans are familiar with.¬† The instructors were kind, patient, and super fun to work with!¬† Meeting them alone was worth the time invested into the workshop, in addition to learning a pretty cool looking dance!¬† I would most certainly take this class again!”
