After a noted performance and teaching career in dance and mime/theatre in Japan, Noriko Yamamoto moved from Tokyo to Toronto, Canada in 1994. She's now established herself firmly in her new home city as a performing artist [dancer, mime, clown, & Silent Storyteller] and as a visual artist [sculptor & mixed media painter (www.momogallery.ca)].
After taking Nia classes for 3 joyous years, Noriko started teaching Nia in 2001. She's been teaching it ever since, and she still loves it!!!
