Glimpse of a Geiko

My Scholarship entry - Glimpse of a Geiko

To welcome and relax her clients Toshisumi performs a short welcoming dance. This short performance keeps her guests entertained whilst the tea house staff prepare and deliver everybody their drinks. Each Maiko will practice one form of dance and each form is a narration of an ancient Japanese  tale. Only once the Maiko has perfected a dance is she allowed to move onto a more detailed and evocative dance.
