Aya / Aya
Been familiar with classical music since childhood. Since the age of 18, she has been deeply involved in Europe, and discovered belly dance in search of a dance that shines beautifully as an individual with music that is different from both Japan and Europe. I was captivated by the feeling of releasing my emotions and swimming in the sound, and realized that my daily state of mind changed as a result. We aim to dance with love.

He likes music that feels the heartbeat, and often engages in folklore dance and odd time signatures.
I surrender myself to the sensations brought out by music, and at the same time, I work on my mind and body every day so that I can dance while observing what is happening inside and outside of me.
