Get Some Culture

It’s been a long while since I’ve attended anything remotely cultural. So my wife and I went to the Obon Festival in Portland last Saturday. Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect.

It turned out to be quite a good time. The main attraction was the bon odori dances (folk dances) that people could optionally participate in. Emphasis on optional.

Next year, I’d like them to add the Algorithm March dance to their list. The first half of the video demonstrates each step of the dance, including an English translation of the movements. The second half of the video displays how the dance all comes together when performed with a group.

If they decide to add this dance next year, I just might join in on the fun. I’ll be the one wearing the ninja outfit.
