Dance extravaganza to be held in Japanese cities

A massive dance extravaganza is set to take Japan by storm over the next few months, as award-winning dancers from all over the world will be performing in a variety of genres and disciplines.

GQ2015 GABBY is a brand new type of show, with audience members having the chance to see some of the best male dancers on the planet from jazz, ballet, street and contemporary dance. All of these talented individuals will be getting together to showcase their skills in an entertainment show that will undoubtedly blow you away. Organisers hope that collaborations between international performers will be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The event was actually established back in 2011, with six shows in Tokyo and two in Osaka all being sold out. Due to this popular demand and great success at the time, it has now returned. GQ2015 GABBY will be playing at the Ex Theatre Roppongi in Tokyo between June 10th and 14th, at Canalcity Theatre in Fukuoka on June 19th and 20th, before finishing at the Morinomiya Pilotti Hall in Osaka on July 4th and 5th. Tickets are expected to be in hot demand so be sure to book yours as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.

The contemporary cultural scene in Tokyo has been thriving in recent years, as the city gears itself up for the 2020 Olympics. Pop-up art galleries have been multiplying across Tokyo, while laws have been passed to remove 'No Dancing' sights at nightclub venues. A government committee has agreed to remove the Law on Control and Improvement of Amusement Business, introduced in 1948 to curb prostitution at dance halls. It is hoped that all of these moves will attract further tourists to Japan over the next few years.
