Anaguma Eisa is a student organization at the University of Wisconsin-Madison that performs eisa, a traditional Okinawan folk dance from the Ryukyu Islands in southern Japan. Their performances excite viewers with a cultural fusion of dance, drumming, martial arts, and both traditional and contemporary Okinawan music. Their mission is to encourage people of all ages and abilities to develop their full potential through cultural understanding and performing arts. They share this mission through a variety of performances and workshops, including Asia Fest of Milwaukee, Madison Public Library, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, which attracts over 1.5 million visitors each year.
