About me :

Currently I live in New York. But I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. I have also lived in Singapore for 1 year plus before moving to New York. I have visited many countries as Thailand, England, Denmark, Bahamas...and so on.

I used to be a jazz-dance instructor and choreographer when I was in Japan. I have also performed for musicals, Christmas shows, and other dance performances.

This was the second lesson that we spent a lot of time discussing something that didn't need to be discussed. Since I couldn't effectively communicate that, I will try to work with another tutor.
