Kabuki Dance Color Book Masks for Kids

kabuki maskKabuki is a classical Japanese dance-drama invented in 1603 by Izumo no Okuni, a miko (Japanese shaman woman). She performed her new style of dancing, singing, and acting in the dry riverbeds of Kyoto, Japan.

At that time all of the dancers were female outcasts, street people and misfits. Through Kabuki dance, Izumo no Okuni helped teach these women acting, dancing and singing skills. In 1629 shogun Tokugawa Iemitsu outlawed women from performing in kabuki and as a result men were first introduced as dancers.

Decorate your dance mask with cut and paste shapes brightly colored paints, feathers, sequins, and paper or fabric trimmings.
