INDIA is a dancer based in Tokyo. She started learning classic ballet from 3, but fell in love with the world of oriental dance when she encountered Roma people dancing at Roma’s spring celebration in Edirne, a little old town in Turkey, and devoted herself to it ever since. She started working as professional oriental dancer from 2013 and began creating her own pieces. She also works on merging the elements from Japanese ethics to the dance, creating new art form in collaboration with kimono designers and classical Japanese musicians. She gives performances in various occasions in Tokyo, as well as in Turkey, Korea, Monaco, and China.
