For over four decades, Fujima Ryu of Chicago (シカゴ藤間流) has maintained its presence in the Japanese American community by performing and supporting various community events throughout the year. In the last 8 years, Asian Improv aRts Midwest has been a primary collaborator and has also produced the major cultural presentations of Fujima Ryu of Chicago. The annual student recital has been consistently presented for the last 40 years, and continues to provide a community platform for the presentation of Japanese Classical Dance(日本舞踊).

Fujima Ryu of Chicago has sustained a community presence in Chicago for the last 40 years, and in the Japanese tradition, every now and then there is a need to refocus and transform; it is called KO RO MO GAE(衣替え).

It is a time to evolve into the next era with a new format as a stronger arts organization. So in October of 2016, in addition to celebrating both the 40th anniversary and the inaugural performance of the newest grandmaster, Fujima Yoshinojo(藤間淑之丞), we renewed our dedication, and redefined our commitment with the new identity of SHUBUKAI(秀舞会).

Shubukai presents cultural arts and educational presentations throughout Chicago and the Midwest, and is committed to maintaining and sustaining the core aesthetics of Japanese classical dance in Chicago and the Asian American community.
