OKEIKO 1 (Bowing - Ojigi)

In Nihon Buyo, the practice always starts and ends with a bow toward the teacher. The dancers and the musicians bow to each other on the stage before performances.

These bows slightly differ from bows seen at tea ceremonies and such. The reason for this might be that the Nihon Buyo dancers bow towards the audience, standing in the wide space of the stage.
