CHIE - Danslärare
Chie is a new teacher at Malmö Dansakademi från USA/Japan and we are so proud to have her! She was born and raised in Osaka, Japan and started her classical ballet training at the age of five.
Her passion for dance guided her to Boston where she attended to Walnut Hill School for the Arts to earn her academic diploma and majored in dance as well. Those three years of training was not enough for her, so she got the full scholarship to attend to The Boston Conservatory, and earned B.F.A. in Dance.
Right after she graduated the school, she moved to New York City to do different types of dance styles and became a freelance dancer. She has performed with Alison Cook Beatty Dance, Inclined Dance Project, Dance Inc, and LLMoves, C.Eule Dance, and many others.
Her strength as a performer is based on a lot of improvisation and assisting the choreography process. Because of that, she also produced her own dance pieces to be performed at various venues such as Peridance, Capezio Center and Center for Performance Research.
She also worked as a certified trainer and a pre-trainer for GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS®. What she has gained through her crazy journey up to now, she is super excited to start sharing all the passion for dance at Malmö Dansakademi! Let’s dance from our heart with a smile from the soul!
