On November 1 MEDAH gathered to observe Culture Day, a national holiday in Japan that promotes culture, the arts and academic endeavor. The evening featured a diverse sampling of dance, singing and music, and was re-dedicated as a celebration of the life of Jackie Ward. Jackie was a gracious matriarch and unwavering supporter of the arts. The evening’s proceeds were donated in Jackie’s memory.
Mahalo to Mike Bambi for the stunning photos. Please be sure to visit Mike Bambi’s beautiful event photography at http://artisthawaii.net/ and on Facebook.

MEDAH invites you to help us usher in the New Year by performing at Morning Brew!
Saturday, February 7, 5-7pm
600 Kailua Road, Kailua, HI
Morning Brew is a great spot for trying out that new solo or new troupe number. The space is warm and inviting, and the perfect opportunity for dancing in an intimate space. There is a small stage that can accommodate perhaps 2 dancers, and a lower floor area that can hold 3 more performers. Attached are photos from our last event, to familiarize you with stage size.
Now is the perfect time to renew so you can perform in our events! (http://medah.org/blog/join-medah/)
If you are a member and would like to perform, please contact MEDAH at email@example.com. Send a short bio for introduction, along with your music in MP3 format. Please come fully dressed (there are no changing rooms).
This is our first 2015 MEDAH event, so we hope to see you there!
