I started early. My parents put me in a class for learning how to move my body to music when I was two years old.
From the ages of 10 to 14, I was entering into national competitions in my home country of Japan. I received eighth place twice and second place once in all Japan dance festivals during my teens. I also had an interest in Japanese archery and hiking.
In my college years I studied Health Science and Creative Dance and was admitted without entrance examination because of my earlier achievements mentioned above.
After graduation, I was hired by Konami Corporation which is the biggest sports club in Japan.
I taught dance fitness, Jazzercise, Body Jam, kids gymnastics and esthetic massage. I eventually moved to head office in Tokyo for helping Jazzercise Japan with promotions and instruction. This was when I started to explore a range of other physical activities such as snowboarding, scuba diving, surfing, and wakeboarding.
I eventually left the company so I could work independently. At this time I was teaching dance fitness, boxercise, stretching, kids dance, exercise for seniors as a freelance instructor in Tokyo. I was also hired to perform at social events and in exercise DVDs. This is when I founded “Carrie Studio” in Shibuya, Tokyo.
