Chiyo Ishihara Ballet School had a charity recital in Utsunomiya, Tochigi.

Chiyo Ishihara Ballet School held a charity recital in Utsunomiya, Tochigi, on September 11th. 152 dancers, raging from 3-year old little dancers to the professional ballet dancers, who had practiced many years at this school, were on a stage. The recital started with the Opening and Coppelia, followed by the highlighted version of Sleeping Beauty. Princess Aurora was peformed by Hiromi Hoshino, who had some experience in U.S.A. and had belonged to K-Ballet, Tokyo, for 4 years. Prince Desire was by Yasuo Atsuji, who had belonged to Birmingham Royal Ballet, England, and now a member of New National Theater, Tokyo. Lilac Fairy was by Misa Nuiya, who had ballet training at Vaganova Ballet Academy, Russia, and now belongs to The Tokyo Ballet, Tokyo.
The donations collected by the dancers during the invervals, and the money paid for the programs were contributed to Ashinaga Scholarship Society. The total amount was 554,316yen.
Chiyo Ishihara commented in the program;
We also experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake in Utsunomiya on March 11th, followed by the rolling blackouts, the lack of gasoline, many aftershocks, and the nuclear accident. Still, the kids kept on gathering at the ballet school for hard ballet lessons. We had considered what we could do. Oh, yes, why don’t we do something to make everybody happy? We have to dance! When kids smile, their parents would smile. When their parents smile, Utsunomiya would, Tochigi would, and Japan would smile. Therefore, we decided to start the lesson especially for this recital right after March 11.
It’s our pleasure to have a charity recital on the day just 6 months after the Great East Japan Earthquake.
