    Kenichi, or Ken as most call him, is a half Japanese/Malaysian who was raised in Thailand for most of his life. Back at home Ken has set himself apart from the norm of dancers to go on dancing for Thailand’s most known artists, teaching at many studios both in and out of the capital, and also establishing a dance studio in partnership with his family.

    To pursue dance entirely, Ken made the move to New York in the spring of 2013. His most recent exposure includes being featured in Mark Ronson’s latest music video “I Can’t Lose” choreographed by the power dance couple, Keone and Mariel Madrid. On this journey Ken has met and worked closely with a lot of amazing choreographers such as Neil Schwartz, Gigi Torres, Jared Jenkins to name a few. He has made the cast to numerous performances in New York’s most hype dance events such as Carnival and Sybarite for the choreographers mentioned above.

    As a breakthrough to the world of creation and choreography, he has also presented pieces for Sybarite, been offered to teach workshops at various places and events; moreover gained the experience of being a judge alongside well known choreographers from the west coast, Sorah Yang and Aggie Loyola for a dance competition hosted by Stony Brook University: PUSO presents SAYAW 2014.

    Having the dream of choreographing and teaching all around the world, Kenichi strongly believes in the idea of always staying a student and is consistently pushing himself past his limits by continuously taking classes that will benefit towards his skill and art form.
