One of many things that we can learn from the talk delivered by Ms. Chisa Tsubota is; “The mission of the leader is to cultivate the next leader. Your time is limited, but if we could pass the baton to the next generation, I believe dance and physical expression make the world a better place.”
Ms.Chisa Tsubota started jazz dance and ballet in her childhood and joined the theater company ‘I’M’ in 2001. In 2008, she enrolled in the Broadway Dance Center-in New York and acquired dance styles in jazz, musical theatre, contemporary, tap, ballet, hip hop as well as singing while making appearances on many dance shows and stages. After returning home, in 2010, she directed, choreographed and played the leading role in an original production by ‘I’M’, “Tsukifune no Miko Monogatari”: The story of Priestess on the Moon Ship, for Art Appreciation Day at Sapopro Odori High School. In the same year, she took part in many other stages including Anne of Green Gables sponsored by S.T. Corporation. Her local contributions include directing stage events, making event appearance, organizing flash mob at weddings, choreographing for YOSAKOI, making artist bookings, and holding workshops, as well as being a contracted choreographer.
