    Ballet

    Biography:



    YUKA KAWAZU was born in Kanagawa, Japan. She has performed throughout the United States and Japan as corps, soloist and principal dancer with many distinguished ballet and theater companies. In the past, Yuka has served as ballet mistress for the Staten Island Ballet Company among others. Yuka is a regular faculty member at several New York City studios, including Ballet Arts and Broadway Dance Center. She was also a faculty member of New Dance Group and the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center. She has choreographed performances at several theaters including the Alvin Ailey Theater, Symphony Space, The Sylvia & Danny Kaye Playhouse, the Duplex and the Triad Theaters and for several dance companies.

    Most recently, Yuka formed Yuka Kawazu/Danse En L'air, a vibrant new ballet company that was fiscally sponsored by New York Live Arts, an internationally recognized forum for innovative dance and visionary artistry. As Artistic Director of Yuka Kawazu/Danse En L’air, Yuka choreographed an entirely original evening-length concert, Planets, which featured pieces that drew from traditional ballet repertoire as well as more experimental styles of dance. Yuka is a guest professor and choreographer at the Showa Music Academia in Japan. Visit Yuka Ballet for more information.
