Hare Hare Yukai is a dance from the Haruhi Suzumiya anime – a dance well known and just perfect for my second dance workshop!
I do sometimes hold workshops during conventions, most of them being dance workshops. It all started with a stupid idea of mine actually – I wanted to have a group of people dancing one choreography from the fit’s ad. Fit’s is chewing Gum and the TV ad is from Japan and really creative and amusing!
I held my first workhop during the YaYuCo, a small event near my homeplace. But I had so much fun and received so much positive feedback that from then on I began to apply to hold dance workshops during other conventions. Fortunately for me I got the chance!
Hare Hare Yukai is the dance from the ending of the anime called ‘The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.’ In Japan this dance turned into something of a phenomenon and was danced a lot and is even found in online games, such as League of Legends.
I wanted to choose a dance many know, and Hare Hare Yukai seemed the perfect choice.
I held the workshop during the Animuc and the YaYuCo (and we sure had a lot of fun!)
I have a video for you, footage we filmed at the end of the workshop. Thanks so much for everyone who took part! You are awesome! ❤
