NOBUKO’S DANCE CLASS
Nobuko Miyamoto taught a dance class in the social hall at Senshin Buddhist Temple beginning in 1975. It was populated by many Asian American non-dancers and dancers in the community, mostly women. Rev. Mas Kodani and the temple graciously allowed it to continue for over 10 years. From this class, dance performances with original music by Benny Yee and Nobuko eventually led to the founding of Great Leap.
