For Immediate Release

     Come and enjoy the Japanese yosakoi-style dance performance being presented by the Japan Society club during the International Festival at Georgia Perimeter College’s Clarkston Campus.

     Performing students will be dressed in kimonos, a type of traditional Japanese apparel, while performing a fishing inspired yosakoi dance titled Sōran Bushi. The dance involves motions resembling pulling and throwing ropes. “It's super fun. It's almost like hunting,” said Tsion Wright, the club's president, while describing the dance.

     The International Festival takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the campus' student center on April 13.

     For more information on the Japan Society Club and the upcoming Sōran Bushi dance, contact Tsion Wright at
