The "sign language dance" program was held in Kumamoto-shi, Kumamoto Prefecture in Japan's southern island on November 4, sponsored by the "Kumamoto Sign Language Dance Club", performed by about 120 members from ten classes within the prefecture. 

They who practiced for about three months towards the dance program performed dancing with 27 songs freely.

Fukuma Asako (福馬朝子), 76, a club leader and instructor, learned about the sign language dance for the first time, devised it so that Deaf/deaf persons could enjoy it, and started a class in 1988.
