Formed Oiran Ohana in 2015.

For 17 years, Mika has learned dancing skills and she has 9 years of choreography teaching experience. After a while, she decided to finally move to Tokyo because the opportunities were more abundant. While in Tokyo, she decided to keep dancing and performed as a dancer in show theaters, then joined an official dance company which helped her sustaining her needs. She then, began to search ideas on how to connect our actual society to dance and dance industry. Mika wanted to create a dancing profession that is recognized as any job would be recognized. For example, in Europe, dance is a thing that everyone would call professional, unfortunately it is a little more difficult in Japan. The aim is to create an environment, where dancers can become real professional and to erase the gap between society and dance.
Mika is still learning psychology, statistics and brain science. From these discipilines, she is willing to create a powerful and touching experience that reminds us of our old memories. As there is no words in dance, she wants to share with the audience a moving performance using both, visual gestures and face expressions.
