Biography

I am a Japanese dance artist. I have been trained in Nihon Buyo since the age of 6. With 14 years of experience in this dance form, I have become a master in portraying the essence of Japanese culture through graceful movements and expressive gestures. Its beauty lies in its ability to express complex emotions and themes through precise movements and gestures, while also showcasing the intricate interplay between movement and music.

I have performed at various prestigious venues such as Japan Event for Luxus (2019) and Japan Festival Berlin in Urania and has received accolades for my performances. I have also had the opportunity to introduce Japanese culture through Nihon Buyo to students of all ages, including at Picasso-Grundschule and Elementary school Randow Berlin.

With a deep understanding and appreciation for Japanese culture, along with my expertise in Kimono, I strive to share my passion for Nihon Buyo with audiences all over the world. I am excited to bring my talent and expertise to your event and create a memorable and authentic experience for all attendees.

My Story

chihocoyanagi-sakura

I learned and mastered NihonBuyo in Japan for 14 years solely from my instructor . In the tradition of this art, professional dancer would perform the Instructor’s choreography; however I as an avant-gardiste, I create my own choreographies thanks to my unique aesthetic sense and a desire to convey specific messages. I infuse my choreography with personal expression, my individuality and artistic vision, creating captivating and meaningful dance pieces.
