January 31, 2020

On Tuesday the 31st of December, the TUFS Flamenco Club performed as backup dancers for the “70th NHK Kōhaku Uta Gassen”. 20 students performed as the “Kōhaku Samba Flamenco Team” for singer ITSUKI Hiroshi’s performance of “VIVA LA VIDA Ikiterutte iine!”, and five students performed as audience dancers during the popular group Arashi’s performance.

At the 70th Kōhaku Uta Gassen, many of our members performed as backup dancers for Itsuki Hiroshi, and a few even performed for Arashi. Being able to perform on a music show so symbolic of Japan was a wonderful once in a lifetime opportunity. We would be happy if our performance inspired even one person to take an interest in flamenco. Please continue supporting the TUFS Flamenco Club.
