46th Annual Performance

Shubukai has presented and taught Fujima style Japanese classical dance in Chicago for the past 45 years. We are happy to announce as part of the concerted efforts of everyone in Asian Improv aRts Midwest, the organization has secured grants and funding which facilitated the purchase of a new building. The AIRMW building will be dedicated to continuing the legacy, training, and to proudly present traditional Japanese arts. To this end, one goal is to build a stage built for Shubukai that is made for Japanese Classical dance.

46th Annual Performance

Your generosity is essential for Shubukai to achieve these goals. We need your help to raise $15,000 to present the 46th Annual Performance and to build the new Shubukai Stage. We continuously strive to sustain our cultural aesthetics by keeping our connections with Japan and presenting in both traditional and contemporary formats as we work to secure a place in the art/dance scene in Chicago representing our Japanese heritage.

We would be honored to receive your support
