Join us for a Wotagei Workshop (or Otagei Workshop if you prefer) at FanimeCon 2104 on Friday at 9 pm. We expect to be in the Valley Room in the Fairmont Hotel (second floor, between Panels 3 and Panels 4). This two hour fan event will cover, not just one, but two kinds of wotagei:
  • Concert wotagei:
    Japanese-style concert cheering -- movements with or without glowsticks, yells (calls, MIXes) and other "concert manners" -- appropriate for anything from street performances and small clubs to big stadium idol and anime song concerts (AKB48, Animelo Summer Live, ...). is a quick starting lesson.
  • Street/Freestyle wotagei:
    Wotagei for making cool dance videos to anime/idol/... songs for posting on Youtube, etc. with glowsticks and more difficult moves. is an example video with groups from the US, Mexico and (mostly) Indonesia. The "U.S. Team" part by our group starts around 2:36, and these local guys will be showing off some of their fancy moves to a couple songs in addition to teaching.
Our official fan event listing:

Wearing loose and comfortable clothing, bringing water, and generally being prepared to wave your arms and yell is encouraged.

Between scheduled performances at Stage Zero and random performances at Fanimaid Cafe, Karaoke or just somewhere with a boombox, there'll be plenty of opportunities to try out what you learned at FanimeCon.  It is our greatest hope that you'll join us in "beating out some wotagei" after the workshop.
