The concept of Minny Story dance

“Good and beautiful posture of mind and body” This is the concept of Minny Story Dance. At our studio children from age 2 to 18 years of age practice classic ballet, singing and acting. Also, especially for young children starting as early as 2 years old we provide storytelling and creative story making. We endeavor to nurture in children “strength for hard work”, “sense of cooperation”, “consideration for others” and “appreciation for diversity”. With our concert series we have presented ballet performances and original musical shows filled with love and warmth which have moved the audience profoundly over two decades.

ミニー・ストーリー・ダンス主宰 杉もと みな子
I had worked as an actor in musicals and TV dramas for over 10 years before I got married and had two children. As a mother I had so many concerns about how to raise children and anxieties for the future. That’s why “Minny Story Dance” came into existence. I felt a desire to raise children sound and strong with my knowledge and experience in Performing Arts. So I decided to deliver it by teaching dance. Since the establishment of Minny Story Dance in 1989 I have been sowing “seeds of Minny” in which I put strength and warmth, into the heart of children. We provide daily lessons at our main studio in Hiroo, present concert, hold workshop camps and visit senior homes. The children and their folks consider our studio “their second home”. I hope the seeds grew up with true love in our studio will bloom into beautiful flowers in their lives.

In these classes, we do the same thing as other Ruby or Sapphire classes, but they are in English. I provide the classes in accordance with the concept of Minny Story Dance “Good and beautiful posture of mind and body”. I hope they can discover with us how happy they can be in learning dance and other things together with friends, how much fun it will be to take on challenging things. Let’s have an exciting experience with us!!
