In Japan, dance is taught as a part of physical education at school. With modesty, fairness and grace, moving our bodies with music for good health. In Vol.1, through the history of Women’s physical education and Kazuo OHNO, and in Vol.2, through 1940 Tokyo Olympics known as “Phantom Tokyo Olympics” and the craze for physical exercise, Saiko KINO, a former PE teacher at junior and senior high school, dancer, and university lecturer, explores the difference between physical exercise, dance and sports with her lecture and performance.
