Last summer I attended the Minato Festival in my town. I saw the kappore dancing and wanted to learn. I have been attending the two hour dance classes at a local gymnasium on Sunday evenings and trying to practice a little with the YouTube instructional videos. I had no idea how difficult all the dances were! The gym is full of people of all ages - children to elderly. There are three or four instructors on a stage in front, one with a microphone. I don't understand everything they say, but it is a lot of right, left, step, stop, and similar words that I know. For the rest, I just try to follow what the people on stage are doing.
Here are videos of the three dance classes I have attended so far. (There is no class tonight so everyone has a break, to practice, I guess.)
Needless to say, I won't be participating in the festival, but I do plan to go and watch. This year the festival will be held August 4, 5, and 6.
