Originally from Okinawa and now based in Tokyo, Yuta Higa is one of the most renowned and stylish salsa dancers/instructors in Japan. Although he has received training only in salsa, Yuta's self-developed style is distinctive, dynamic, and full of attitude. He loves dancing as a leader, and a follower as well, and is uniquely skilled in both roles. With many years of dance experience, his goal is to engage the audience in "fun" and "entering" social dancingrather than "cool" or "impressive".
Ishadow is a dance group, produced by Yuta Higa, launched in 2010 in Tokyo. All Ishadow members are huge dance addicts and dedicate their passion to performing. Although they are non-professional dancers, they have a loyal following of fans and are highly praised by the audiences, which Yuta confidently attributes to the members’ hard work.
In the choreography, Yuta pays the utmost attention to the synchronicity of sounds, movements, and formations, which he always wants the audience to enjoy through the physical senses.
