A performance by the Men's Rhythmic Gymnastics Team of Aomori University was held on July 18, 2013 (Thu), in the Number 2 Gymnasium of Yoyogi National Stadium.
The theme of the performance was "Soaring Bodies and Flying Souls." Choreographer Daniel Ezralow acted as producer for the performance by the Men's Rhythmic Gymnastics Team of Aomori University, which expressed the feeling of wonderment at the vast wilderness and brought to life the many creatures of the ocean.
The performance, which combined the beautiful and swift movements of rhythmic gymnastics and the emotional choreography of dance, provided an opportunity for people to feel the potential of men's rhythmic gymnastics for new modes of expression.
