Distance Floating dancers

(L-R): Julie Bennett, Shasta Taiko member; Michelle Fujii and Toru Watanabe whimsically dance to "Distance Floating" a mystical dance number created by Russel Baba, featuring his accomplished Jazz saxaphone playing skills. Russel also created and crafted the intriguing headdresses worn by the dancers. The percussive beat of the taiko drums provided Russel backdrop for his free improvisational melody to which the dancers moved within.
