On Tuesday 25 July, the Japanese Programme released this year’s collaborative dance video – ‘Koi Dance’.
This dance, which originates as the theme tune of a popular Japanese TV drama, has become a craze in Japan. Our version was made from sections of the dance performed by all 400+ participants at this year’s annual NCEA Japanese Workshop at UC in June, edited together with sections made by the 15 individual participating local high schools.
The dance video has attracted over 25,000 hits since its launch and we are hoping that it tops the 89,000+ hits that last year’s dance attracted.
