Our talented cast of 30 performers will be immersed in Japanese culture as they teach, travel, perform, and mentor the next generation of globe-connecting creatives! The cast will be visiting Japan during the Sakura season, which is when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, and one of the most beautiful times of the year in Japan!

2023 will bring even more touring opportunities, including the U.S., Europe, plus more opportunities to Japan.
