PLACE: Atelier Kanawa or Online

In this class, you learn the fundamental to refined manner / decorum to gracefully and properly present yourself in a kimono so that you do not appear that you are worn by Kimono. Starting with the lecture of “Waso-do” (Kimono way of life) and the origin of Japanese decorum, you learn the concept of “Seichu/Kamiza/Shimoza” (seat of honor/lower seat, based on sacred midline), practice standing, seiza, walking, turning, and the four levels of bow. Students also learn graceful communication decorum such as conveying your speech and writing.

Students also lean Kimono hair styling and Kimono related accessories making.

For Kimono fashion show model segment, students learn the concept of “Kamite/Shimote” (stage left/right), practice as much as possible from walking on stage, speed, pose, posing positions, angles, attractive movements, and handling the sleeves and props.

Taking this class is required for all the Washington D.C. Kimono Club members to preserve their membership, as well as students who are close to completing yukata course and plan to apply for membership. Please take full advantage from this remarkable opportunity to learn how to present you in a graceful manner when wearing a kimono like a Yamato Nadeshiko.

This quality class offers beyond Kitsuke (putting on Kimono) enriches your Waso-do (Kimono way of life) in harmony, with elegant decorum based on genuine Japanese spirituality. Furthermore, it teaches you lessons for success in life. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to attend and study Waso-do (Kimono way of life).

**Cancellation/rescheduling can be made by the class reservation deadline. Refunds will not be given to cancellations or no shows after this date. Your credit can be used up to one month from the day for the class, only if the reason of the absence is an emergency.
