Buyō (舞踊?) or Nippon Buyō/Nihon Buyō (日本舞踊?) is a traditional Japanese performing art, a mixture of dance and pantomime, which emerged in the early Edo period (early 17th century) from earlier traditions. While performed independently by specialists, it is particularly conspicuous as the style of dancing performed by geisha.
