In early November at Hotel Kanyo, Angela Ortiz, Aki Endo and the heart and soul of the Santa Soul Train kids activity -  Stuart-O himself - travelled to Minami Sanriku to entertain and communicate with children through expressive, aerobic, high energy dance, art, and language.  The kids were enthralled, and excited, and we felt inspired!
