Welcome Michiko's Corner
ーーーーーーSohei & Wahine Maika`iーーーーーー
☆Our Studio started "Hula Dance Boom" 20 years ago!
In those days hula dance was very popular among old women of 70s ,so I was younger. Male dancer were none.
Young my sons, Takahashi Bros started dancing everywhere, so hula world was activated. (But, I seemed that they were subjects criticism.）
20 years ago Takahashi Bros(Hideharu was 10 years) performed hula dance and instruments at authentic stages, competition in Hawaii, St Francisco, Japan completed one by one.
In those days hula dance was no man's hobby and was not a professional job for men at all.
He established hula dance as "profession for men" to live with.
♪ Sohei raised prestige of hula dance, established it as a "profession for male" desperately and sincerely. ♪
☆I think Sohei's achievement for fighting the social prejudice to hula dance (as not for game, not for hobby) was great.
☆I think that Sohei has been making ceaseless efforts for perusing hula dance at stages and researches as leader and teacher for 10 years, seriously
☆ Our studio set a fire on the big boom of "Hula Dance at Wedding ".
It was an age of making lower their brows when dancing hula in a solemn occasion as wedding.
（To put it plainly hula dance is for bar and drinking place and was looked down.）
Even if do, we made the great efforts to dissemination of hula dance. (At that time took a job on hula dance at wedding even if economically minus.)
Even at present this stance is never changed.
"1Day Lesson " is it. The bride herself and invitees also are able to hula dance after 1 day lesson surprisingly well.
"1Day Lesson" is still loved for 10 years by everyone.
☆ Serious is the influence of our studio to Japanese hula dance studio!
For recently hula dance is one of making money job, among presently active hula dancers and musicians there are some hula dancer and musicians who were not related with Hawaiian business before and changed their trades from other fields.
Now those who open hula dance studio with parents and sons, are not so rare.
This owes to devoting to populate hula dance to some extent
People of the future who seek to hula dance are only going the way paved by Takahashi Bros.
Takahashi Bros defend hula, and cherish Hawaii culture, in spite of youth, why jumping to not-popular dance?
Probably beat something？ In those days if they had not guts, their passion to hula were not understood!
All those guys, Sohei and Hideharu are the real things!
20s years ago I am in a younger group in Japanese Hula World. At that time the main stream was 60 - 80s.
Male dancers were none!
I am in 30s.
On NHK TV, after the morning drama, before and after of Morning News and Evening News, my unskillful hula dance appeared on several succeeding months.
Since "Sohei & Wahine Maika`i Hula Studio " was opened， 19years was passed
