Dancing4Kids © "Supporting children & promoting arts & culture across borders"
During the month of May 2013 which is the month of artists promotion in Japan, we have organized some events that meet our objectives with a very strong participation this year from Greece! We are now ready to proudly introduce to everyone in Japan and the world an outstanding Greek Jazz musician Mr Dimitris Vassilakis. Dimitris will soon be arriving in Tokyo to participate at the very prestigious TEDxTokyo conference and collaborate with other incredibly talented artists in Japan. Dancing4Kids is the main sponsor of this trip and the organizer of the activities planned to take place in support of this project. Please join us on May 11th and May 16th and become a part of our special community that celebrates diversity artfully and benefits our society across borders.
We would like to sincerely thank the Embassy of Greece in Tokyo and Ambassador Nikolaos TSAMADOS, Minister Plenipotentiary, for supporting our activities. A very special thanks also goes to Mr Dimitris Vassilakis, Mr Makoto Kuriya, Japan-Greece Society, TEDxTokyo and Oakwood for collaborating with us to make things happen!
