－What do you think is the significance of physical expression in contemporary society?
Dance is my life. My job is to dance.
Dance is also my expression.
So I want to improve myself as a dancer.
－What do you want to convey to people through your physical expression?
My body expresses my thoughts and emotions through the flexibility on the stage.
I believe I can share my emotional experiences with the audiences.
By physical expression I want to give them joy and love.

Now, it is when there is a war in Ukraine, many people are sacrificed every day,
