Shizuka Aoi – Dancer
Shizuka Aoi tumbled into the world of gymnastics at the age of six and continued it until college, leaving a great record of accomplishments at many major competitions.
Making great use of the physical talents she had acquired from gymnastics, she dove into the realm of dance while attending university.
While performing on numerous stages and actively working as a choreographer, she created an entertainment group, Sadalsuud, which fuses both elements of dance and gymnastics.
With top-class gymnasts and dancers of Japan, she continues to create new and unique stage shows.
Currently, she makes performance shows collaborating with gymnastics and also works on creating choreography for artists.
“I want to create things that only I can create.”
Her challenging pursuit to push the limits of dance and performance art continues to this day.
