Shin3 ["Shin-three"] is a recently established ensemble of three female performers who have a background in taiko and Japanese folk dance. Shin3 also teaches, creates and perform both original and traditional pieces, such as Shishimai (lion dance).

Shin is a root word that has multiple definitions but three were adopted to reflect the group's core values. 1) heart-mind 2) truth and, 3) trust. Each of these three values are depicted as three distinct kanji (Chinese characters in Japanese writing).

Shin3 can also be read as "Shin to the power of 3". This, too, has multiple connotations: 1) the three members of the group, 2) the three core values (kanji), and 3) the three-dimensionality of the group.

As performers, Shin3 seeks to add originality, humor and audience interaction to its performances. The members take joy in performing and teaching and every effort is made to interact and connect with the audience/students to share in that joy.

Shin3 consists of: Audrey Nakasone, Elaine Fukumoto and Joyce Layne.
Shin3 is affiliated with Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple in Los Angeles.
