Dance Music Sample Video(English)
  • When filming with a smartphone, hold the screen sideways.
  • Wear clothes in solid colors or without pictures or letters as much as possible.
    Please avoid in particular clothes bearing characters or company logos.
    Also, please make sure that characters or company logos do not appear in the background.
  • Your dance video might look even more attractive, if you could somehow add to it a ‘flavor’ of your country or culture. For example, you could dance wearing a national costume, or choose a location that looks typical of your country.
  • Please limit your dance to the part shown in the sample video.
  • Due to copyright reasons, the sound source cannot be downloaded from the NHK website.
    When dancing, play the sample video with the music on and dance along!
    (If you film while sticking to these rules, you have a higher chance of having your video shown on the website or on air!)
  • Since the scene will be enlarged when it is telecast, please film in high image quality as much as possible!
  • Please film in a size with room above and below, right and left since the scene will be framed!
