Noh Education in USA

Mayo Miwa has been facilitating for educational programs of Japanese art and culture at schools and to the general public through Noh chanting and dance in America.

Each introductory Noh class is scheduled for your own needs; for people who would like to discover the profound art of Noh, rejuvenate your body and mind with a training of Noh dance and chanting, or artists who would like to inspire your creativity through the medieval performing art. Recently Mayo put in the effort to Noh training as a guest teacher such as for high school students and college students major in Japanese language and Theater departments.
