Ayame Kai

Ayame Kai’s mandate is to promote awareness and respect of Japanese culture and to preserve a part of Japanese heritage through dance.

The group was founded by the late Barbara Nikaido and celebrated their 25th Anniversary in 2009. Today, they have a vibrant group of dancers ages 4 and up, with lessons held on Friday evenings. The family-oriented environment fosters a love of odori dancing and life-long friendships.

They have performed all over North America at various festivals and events, and continue to have opportunities to perform throughout the year.
