Kanoko is originally from Tokyo, Japan where she started ballet classes when she was just five years old. She currently studies at the Academy of Theatre and Dance/Modern Theatre Dance within the Amsterdam University of the Arts. Kanoko prefers music which triggers memories from her past. If she was not a dancer, she would like to be a massage therapist.
