Folk Dance:

Folk Dance: as defined by Wikipedia

A folk dance is developed by people that reflect the life of the people of a certain country or region. Not all ethnic dances are folk dances. For example, ritual dances or dances of ritual origin are not considered to be folk dances. Ritual dances are usually called “Religious dances” because of their purpose. The terms “ethnic” and “traditional” are used when it is required to emphasize the cultural roots of the dance. In this sense, nearly all folk dances are ethnic ones. If some dances, such as polka, cross ethnic boundaries and even cross the boundary between “folk” and “ballroom dance”, ethnic differences are often considerable enough to mention.

Dance Theatre of Japan:

The dance theatre of Japan is unique. Please review the attached Prezi for a breakdown of Noh, Kabuki, and Butoh. Noh is very slow and stylized theatre, utilizing an all male cast to portray different characters in Japanese society, exploring big themes like life and death. Kabuki is much faster paced, more bright colors, and showier in nature- also all male. Butoh is the dance of darkness. Themes of death are explored in a slow earthbound sense. It is definitely a very stylized art form, presenting painful images of devastation in the world. 

Noh Theatre:

Kabuki: this form of Japanese theatre, is truly a spectacle. This particular performance took place o the Las Vegas strip- a kind of perfect locale for an art form that is all about spectacle. 

Kabuki film: for a more complete look at Kabuki this is an excellent film, you are not required to view it in its entirety.
