I think we should have a combination for the bon odori workshop
because, some people might think bon odori is a little dry. If we
can, maybe we can invite Stuart from the Burlington Taiko to do a
combo event. If not, I think it would be best to combine the bon
odori session with something, anything else. Bon odori is kinda
different from western culture (except for the maypole maybe). To me,
it seems like a difficult thing for people to understand and fully
appreciate. If you want, we can maybe combine the bon odori with
another dance thing (eg DDR)to give students different styles of dance.
