The leader of a music group got interested in sign language when he was watching a certain TV drama, and started to add sign language while dancing to the music that he loved.
He put together a group called HAND SIGN in 2005 and created a performance that included sign languages. They’ve performed on various stages, and kept on winning numbers of dance contests.
In 2010, they’ve performed at the Opening Night of the Amateur Night in NYC. Soon, they were certified as an officially authorized performer of the Apollo Theatre.
In Japan, they’ve been appearing on TV and radio, and they’ve also been performing at night clubs, dance events, events related to sign languages, and other events held by companies as a guest performer.
Also, as a teacher, they go around various schools and do a special lecture about sign languages to tell kids how wonderful sign languages are.
