Classical Japanese dance in her heart
Naoyuri’s major dance influences came from her father , a classical Japanese dancer, Yujiro Mizumiki, whom she first studied under when she was just 2 years old; and from Naosato Wakayagi, whom she studied under from 2002. The Wakayagi Institute was established by Judo Wakayagi, in the Yanagibashi area of Tokyo and karyu-kai (Geisha district) areas. The style emphasises delicate posture and overall elegance.Although passionate about classical Japanese dance, Naoyuri has diversified her studies to also include many Western dance styles, such a Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Tap.She is in constant pursuit of a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and classical Japanese dance, and wishes to share the experience of all styles from Edo to modern dance with a local and global stage.
