Kokoro Dance is one of Canada's leading butoh dance troupes. Based in Vancouver, British Columbia, it was founded in 1986 by artistic directors Barbara Bourget and Japanese Canadian Jay Hirabayashi. They have performed across Canada, in the United States, and abroad.

As is characteristic of butoh dance, they often perform naked, shaved heads, and covered in white body make-up. They perform an annual dance at Vancouver's clothing-optional Wreck Beach.
