Since the age of 3, Shiho Tendou has been training within the Tendou Ryu traditional dance group that her grandmother established in 1984. Since 2006, she has been training under one of Japan's most famous Kabuki dance performers, Kikuhiro Otowa, who had taught Japanese Performing Arts at the University of Illinois as a performance trainer for a few years.
Shiho Tendou majored in Theater Arts at Nihon University of Arts. Through her Japanese dance experience and performance, she desires to show the real beauty of performing arts; that is, to invoke the beauty of spiritual energy and emotion in order to help the audience understand and feel more than they normally would from something purely visual.
Shiho Tendou would like to introduce the important meanings of performance through traditional Japanese dance. Displaying her inner spirit through dance is one of her passions as a dancer.
