Sho Jo Ji Japanese Dancers

The Sho-Jo-Ji Japanese Dancers was formed in 1956 by three talented women from Japan, Yoshiko Baker, Dolly Semonco and Linda Omura. The group is sponsored by the Cleveland Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League. Generations of dancers uphold the mission: To preserve the art of Japanese dance, To perform Japanese dances, and To teach Japanese dance. The dancers will use colorful fans and parasols to depict the moods and stories of the songs.

Performers: Pam Souza, Melissa Spencer, Nanci Taketa, and Bev Kerecman
