Yosakoi Dance Project – 10tecomai is a Dance Troupe based out of New York,. For 15 years, our goal has been to spread knowledge of the wonderful celebratory style of dance known as Yosakoi across the United States. Yosakoi originated in the Kochi Prefecture in Japan nearly 70 years ago. Its style of dance is a wonderful fusion of Japanese Movement and Dance with other styles of music and dance, limited only by a Yosakoi teams imagination. Positive, uplifting energy and celebratory spirit are some of Yosakois greatest characteristics. Last year 10tecomai joined with various Yosakoi teams all around the United States to form one team known as “Kazanami” which performed in California’s Cherry Blossom Festival in Japantown San Francisco. We hope to continue on this path to spreading and sharing the love of Yosakoi to everyone!
