Mary Mariko Ohno opened the KABUKI ACADEMY in 1983 to instruct Japanese classical dancing, Naga-uta style shamisen music and the general concepts of Kabuki Arts at Tacoma Community College, Seattle Central Community College and her studio in Tacoma, Washington (in the Pacific Northwest). By this time, the numbers of her enthusiastic students reach well over 500, including Americans, Japanese-Americans and even Japanese living in the U.S.A.

Although she lives in Tacoma, Mary Ohno goes to Japan to perform Japanese dancing and shamisen music at numerous theaters in Tokyo, Japan to improve her skills. Those who join her Kabuki Academy are fully satisfied with her energetic, patient and well disciplined lessons preceded by her fluent English and Japanese.
