ABOUT

Shiho Tendou

 

Since the age of 3, Shiho has been training within the Tendou Ryu traditional dance group that her grandmother established in 1984. She also has been training under one of the famous Nihon-buyo and Kabuki dance performers, Kikuhiro Otowa who studied under Kikuzou Otowa who was the student of 6 daime Onoe Kikugoro.

Shiho 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 is a 3 Daime Tendou-Ryu Japanese Dance Performer, Choreographer, and Kimono Model. She is the main performer for the Tendou-Ryu Japanese Dance Organization
