AIU Dance Club- Yuki Hayashi, Sophomore

Are you interested in participating in some activities other than “study” during your study abroad?

Join one of AIU’s AIU’s 40+ clubs and circles to pursue your passions, build friendships, and practice intercultural communication in several languages.

AIU Voices would like to introduce you to some of the club and group activities at AIU. Through these club activities, you may not only make great memories, but you may also meet friends for life!

Here’s a message from the deputy director AIU Dance Club, Yuki Hayashi.


Hello, we are AIU Dance Club. We are really sorry that we cannot see you exchange students directly because of the COVID-19 pandemic this year. The exchange students and the degree-seeking students always enjoy dancing all together every year. Here, we are going to tell you what our activities are like.

Each member belongs to at least one genre out of four, which are Lockin’, Breaking, Jazz, Freestyle Hip Hop, and each genre holds about two practices every week. The four genre leaders kindly explain how you should move, of course, in both English and Japanese, so

you will improve your dance skills quickly even if you are a beginner.

We all practice hard for each semester’s performance, and you can form your team for this stage. Some exchange students organized their teams and performed creative and emotional dances. Also, others joined a lot of teams and greatly livened the audience up. All of us can have a great time at the performance.

We all appreciate our activities as one of the connections among every member, even though our native languages are different. Of course, we are looking forward to dancing with you. If you get interested in our club, please send a message to our SNS account. We all hope to see you on campus!
