I think we are talking about embu here - at least I am, and I am pretty sure Peter is. And those are by definition an offering of the true essence of the art to the kami. Mortals are sometimes allowed to watch.
I don't think that description can be applied to most of the videos one finds on YouTube, though.

And even when it does apply, the kami can see things that mortals not involved in the art cannot.
