Shizuno Nasu embodies the Asian spirit and Hawaii's powerful nature. Integrating F'u Sui Ka, the movements of swaying in the wind, the flowing of water, and the flaming and flickering of our inner energy, as well as her original spiral movements, Shizuno Nasu and company become one with the elements. Thru creative and completely improvised dance and conscious breath, this company of artists blend the extremes of big nature and the gentleness

SHIZUNO NASU was born in Osaka, Japan and began her classical ballet training at age three.
She was chosen as an exchange student with the Bolshoi Ballet at age seven and made her debut as a professional dancer at age 19.
She has won high praise in France, Germany, Italy, Greece, India, South Korea, China, Japan and the U.S.
Shizuno’s quest for her own stylistic voice led her to study old Japanese mythological dances.
She undertook a multi-year pilgrimage, performing in every prefecture of Japan, and deepening within her the skill and spirit of mai, the dance.
Beyond the influence of both the West and the East, Shizuno continues to refine her unique mai, a dance attuned to the rhythms of Mother Nature.
Her most recent and successful stage production, “Pele and Poliahu” (‘09 & ‘10), showed her passion for and inspiration in movement and nature.
Shizuno says “Spirit and Nature can be seen in the movement of wind, the stark land of Pele, and the interweaving energies of opposites, yin and yang…
We must heal the earth with renewed spirit and awareness of the interconnectedness of all beings and elements.”
She currently resides in Volcano, on the Island of Hawai'i, where she continues to generate new Spiral Visions, teach dance, and aspires to bring cultures together through international cultural exchange.
