Obon dance or bon odori are traditionally part of the Japanese ancestor festival of Obon. The dances are easy to learn and the more people, the more fun. Join us to learn and practice Tucson’s own Obon dance. Then join us in the Procession on Nov. 5!
You can learn the dance in one session, but come to others for practice, work on costumes and the Procession Drum Cart. Donations to the All Souls Procession invited. Following sessions are Wed. 10/25, 5:30–6:30pm and Sat. 10/28, 12:30–2:00pm
