Invitation to the 3rd Social Dance Sports Party in Hirado

We, NPO Hirado Yugaku Net (Hirado Pleasure with Learning Network), held the first social dance sports party in Hirado in 2007 by the initiative of our member Tameike Chiyomi with the aim of diffusing the social dance as sports and its consequent improvement of health to the local people as well as the regional revitalization by the increase of people interchange. In 2008 we held successfully the second one by inviting the former world champion couple of Hawkins and Justina. Last year, unfortunately, we had to postpone it by force of circumstances but we have decided to hold the third one this year.

This year, we have invited the Japan Champion couple of Masayuki Ishihara and Ayami Kubo, and the former French Youth World Champion couple of Charles-Guillaume Schmitz and Elena Salikhova as special demonstrators.

Hirado, the venue of the party, is a castle town which used to be governed by the feudal lord Matsura Clan and is also a port town which prospered from trading with China and the West, while it was once called "Western Capital" as the first international trading port with Portugal and Holland. In 1550, Christianity was introduced on arrival of Jesuit missionary Francis Xavier and even now Christian culture can be found in every corner of Hirado. At the same time, the nature spreads throughout the island, since one fourth of the entire land has been designated as a national park area.

The date will be on October 17, Sunday in the autumn when the local specialty "Ago (flying fish)" can be enjoyed. Will you please come and dance in Hirado, while enjoying a historical city sightseeing and local food in a town full of exotic atmosphere? For those who will come from far away, tours from Tokyo or Fukuoka, even a tour from France are planned.

Looking forward to your visit and participation in the party in Hirado, we remain

Yoshio Koteda
