Kyoko was great! She arranged a meeting beforehand to understand what kind of dance we want and then she always tried to create something with which we are comfortable. We didn't have prior dance experience but she taught us very quickly with practical tips. I would definetely recommend working with her!

Details: Two (ex. me and my partner) • First dance • Slow Dance • No, I do not have choreography in mind • No experience • At the pro’s location

I just have to say that this experience was AMAZING!!! I highly recommend!! I can’t even begin to describe how awesome Kyoko was to work with! She saved us completely. First of all my fiancé and I have zero experience with dancing and Kyoko somehow taught us a full choreographed dance. Not only did she come to our house and teach us in such a helpful way, she literally choreographed the entire dance for us on her free time, matching it to our first dance song perfectly. She even suggested the perfect style of dance for us and made such wonderful moves for us to follow, that we’re realistic while also impressive. I recommend getting the package, it’s really nice to have that time with her to develop a great dance!

If you're looking for a excellent choreographer (plus good value for your money), then look no more. PRESENTING KYOKO. My daughter found (and we looked and compared many, considering all factors) Kyoko online for her debut. If you don't know what a debut is, it is similar w a quinceanera, only it differs that, in our culture, the girls celebrate it when they turn 18. Now I've heard and learn from others to not expect too much expertise from choreographers doing a quince or debut. But I must say, Kyoko is different. She definitely exceeded our expectations. She turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. And more. Not only because she was knowledgeable and experienced, creative and passionate about her job, flexible and a team player w great interpersonal skills.. but most importantly because she REALLY HEARD my daughter. What my daughter was kind of looking for. She had a steady sense of "the big picture". Using these great skills, Kyoko created several dance routines unique to my daughter's group. AND THEY WERE ALL PERFECT. FOR MY DAUGHTER AND HER GROUP. AND THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT. Kyoko is a great communicator, and I think it is important to be, as a choreographer. She has an amazing understanding of her dancer(s) ability and potential, and will work on those traits to create a routine(s) that is/are original and suitable for a particular group. And she absolutely delivered doing these. She even created several different dance routines for us. And they were all awesome! We had a lot of compliments from our guests afterwards saying hiw much they loved every dance! And not that we needed to hear them, coz it was definitely obvious anyways in all our guests' very pleased looking faces, and their loud and enthusiastic applause. I will give Kyoko more than 5 stars if it would let me here but unfortunately not ;) I absolutely highly recommend her! Thank you so much Kyoko.. for being part of making my daughter's special day enjoyable and memorable. My daughter and I are very much grateful and appreciate you. I will spread the word of how amazing you are 🙂❤

We really enjoyed working with Kyoko. She took two very inexperienced dancers and gave us the confidence to pull off a beautiful first dance. She was very easy to work with and was so patient with us! Thank you Kyoko!!

Kyoto was fantastic. We took lessons before my daughters wedding and Kyoto choreographed the bride/groom and father/daughter dance. During the lessons she made everyone feel at ease and worked with us to give us something we were very happy with. We also had a personal emergency which meant we had to reschedule. Kyoto dealt with it in a very professional manner and moved her other bookings around to accommodate us. I highly recommend her, she is a wonderful person.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing are base on how many students I’ll be teaching and as well as what dances I’m choreographing. So my prices range between $75 to $100 an hour. I also offer discounted package deals as well.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The process is for customers to get in contact with me so we can schedule a consultation meeting and discuss what you want choreographed. Then once that’s completed we will than schedule your first dance lesson and get started ! 😁

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I currently hold Bachelor Degree in Dance and a Minor in Education Studies at UC San Diego.
