UKA KAWAZU was born in Kanagawa, Japan. She has performed throughout the United States and Japan as corps, soloist, and principal dancer with many distinguished ballet and theater companies. For the past ten years, Yuka has served as ballet mistress for the Staten Island Ballet Company, and she teaches yearly at the New Jersey Dance Theater Project. Yuka is a regular faculty member at several New York City studios, including Broadway Dance Center, Ballet Arts, Dance Molinari, New Dance Group, 92nd Street Y, The Harkness Dance Center and Burklyn Ballet Theater. She has also choreographed performances for Alvin Ailey Theater.

Most recently, Yuka formed Danse En l’Air, a vibrant new ballet company that was selected for funding by New York City Live Arts, an internationally recognized forum for innovative dance and visionary artistry. As Artistic Director of Danse En L’Air, Yuka choreographed an entirely original evening-length concert, Planets, which featured pieces that drew from traditional ballet repertoire as well as more experimental styles of dance. Yuka is a certified Pilates instructor in New York, and an annual guest professor and choreographer at the Showa Music Academia in Japan. Read more about Yuka’s teaching schedules at
