TOKYO has a very unique induction into dance as he was not introduced to dance until he was a Senior in high school. TOKYO began training in martial arts at age 5. At age 17, after a promising undefeated amateur career, just a few months shy of making a professional career in MMA (mixed martial arts/cage fighting), TOKYO discovered dance and his life changed drastically. Since leaving the “fight world” and entering the dance world, TOKYO has been fortunate enough to have done master classes and choreography in the US, Canada, Australia, Central America, France, Poland, Ukraine, Croatia, Mexico, Ireland, Scotland and UK for many music artists, TV shows, music videos, musicals, studios, companies, colleges, casinos and Cirque Du Soleil. TOKYO is returning from Ukraine where he was a special guest judge for So You Think You Can Dance-Ukraine (International season). While in his time in Europe, TOKYO choreographed the largest musical production in France’s history, Adam et Eve. TOKYO also choreographed for MTV Music Video Award nominated music video “Holding onto You”. TOKYO is currently on faculty at the world renowned professional dance studio Millennium Dance Complex. Most recently, TOKYO and Alisha Captain launched an incredible training program (TOKYOtheACADEMY) where dancers from all over the world come to train and enhance their talents!
