On Wednesday, October 18, 2017, I had the great opportunity to watch Koto Player, Yumi Kurosawa, and So You Think You Can Dance dancer, Virgil Gadson, perform together for the first time. While watching the duet, I was in tears as the beautiful Koto playing and the breathtaking, skillful dance meshed together perfectly. Since I had never experienced something like this before, I was simply stunned with the amount of skill and technical competence that both performers inhabited. I have always been a fanatic for great music and beautiful dance, yet this experience has made me love both so much more than I have ever before, and I would love to have the opportunity to watch something as breathtaking as this was again.
