Learn the Paueru Mashup dance at Oppenheimer Park with Kaya Tsumuri of Company 605! Kaya will be teaching the Paueru Mashup and preparing community dancers for a flash mob performance on the festival weekend! The dance is designed for all bodies, and everyone is welcome. No prior dance experience is required, but please be aware of your own safety and health.  

Once you’ve learned the dance, come and join us at Oppenheimer Park on July 31st for our Paueru Mashup Flashmob community dance! Everyone is welcome. Please see details of the event here.

The Paueru Mashup is a Japanese Canadian community dance commissioned by Powell Street Festival for 2020. Music for the mashup was composed by Onibana Taiko and choreography was done by Company 605. 

Paueru Mashup Cross Country encourages Japanese Canadian communities to engage in the Paueru Mashup. This project offers activity conducive to health and well-being through online dance practice. This mimics the Paueru Mashup from 2020, but with new goals to engage to Japanese Canadian communities on a nation-wide scale. The project will culminate in an exciting video, featuring dance participants from all around Canada.
