Reasons for award:

Hanayagi Ōhisui was born into a family of practitioners of Japanese classical dance and was initiated into the art under her mother’s direction at a very early age. She gained accreditation in the Hanayagi school of dance as a natori at the age of seventeen. After becoming apprenticed to her idol Hanayagi Toshinami and developing rapidly under her teacher’s benign influence, she voraciously absorbed the essence of Japanese classical dance. Her studies soon bore fruit and she was awarded prizes at the prestigious New Year’s Dance Competition sponsored by the Japanese Classical Dance Association on consecutive occasions, thus becoming a major focus of attention in the world of Japanese classical dance with great hopes held out for her future career. In addition to her activities as a performer she has made a major contribution to conveying the appeal and artistic value of Japanese classical dance through her work as a university lecturer in the fields of the practice and theory of the genre and her presentation of lectures and workshops throughout Japan.
Hanayagi Ōhisui is an outstanding talent who is able with consummate skill to express the profound and rich artistry of this genre of dance while maintaining the lightness bequeathed to her by her teacher. She can also be expected to play a major role henceforth as a performer with the capacity to ensure a bright future for the art of Japanese classical dance.
