In 2000, Up with People’s newly developed show called ” A Common Beat” makes its world premiere in Detroit, Michigan. After the show toured for a year, Up with People suspended operations. The show was licensed to NPO Common Beat, and in 2004 “A Common Beat” premieres in Japan.
Since its founding, NPO Common Beat has performed in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Ishinomaki in Japan, in Seoul, South Korea, and at Up with People Reunions in Tucson, AZ, USA and Orlando, FL, USA.
