~ A wonderful training opportunity for young people of the future ~


Our mission is to support Japanese students studying Ballet abroad and become successful in their professional dancing careers.
I always strive to provide a safe environment where students can learn with confidence whilst studying abroad.
The International Ballet Forum has so far managed over 250 Japanese students.
Through numerous years of interaction with various principles of ballet schools and ballet company directors led to a deepening of our connection with them.
As a result, we were able to establish a good relationship with some National ballet schools and ballet companies in Europe, and open up the doors to Japanese young dancers.
Many alumni of International Ballet Forum are now studying at ballet schools and work with ballet companies in Europe.
I strongly value the passion of students who loves ballet, want to further develop, and looking to succeed internationally.
I will accompany students as much as possible whilst training abroad. I will also assist them in writing Dance CV.
Certainly my goal is to support the students as coach, mentor and even like a mother when accompanying them, or sometimes spend a pleasant time together like a best friend. 
My hope is to develop more students from Japan with successful professional dancing careers at world's leading ballet companies.
I will continue to support them as a ballet loving mentor.
I always cherish the words "Begin with gratitude and finishes with gratitude"
