Kevin "TOKYO" Inouye
Tokyo had a very unique induction into dance as he was not introduced to it until he was a senior in High School. Tokyo grew up studying martial arts, and began his training at age 5. By the time he was 15 he had attained several black belts in various disciplines in addition to training in Wrestling, Muay Thai, Boxing and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts/Cage Fighting).
At age 17, after a promising undefeated amateur record, just a few months shy of having a professional career in MMA, Tokyo discovered dance and his life changed drastically. Since leaving the fighting world and entering the dance world, Tokyo has been fortunate enough to have taught master classes and set choreography in the United States, Canada, Australia, Central America and the UK for numerous studios, companies, colleges and casinos. He has also had the extreme pleasure of working with Cirque Du Soleil.
Due to Tokyo's background in martial arts, his approach to dance movement, philosophy and teaching is very unique, and has been well received and loved by many. Along with teaching and choreographing, Tokyo spent four years directing one of the largest dance competitions in the United States. Since concluding his position as a competition director, Tokyo is currently on faculty at the world renowned professional dance studio, Millennium Dance Complex, in Los Angeles. He most recently choreographed what is now France’s largest musical production, “Adam et Eve.” Through the art of dance, he is extremely excited to give back to those that have given so much to him!
