Mimi Ito | Junior Company

Mimi started taking ballet and tap classes when she was 4 years old. She then took a break from dancing and began figure skating, which she pursued for four years. In 2011 she decided to take her very first hiphop dance class. She absolutely fell in love with it and continued dancing with Ms. Arica at CKDC. After taking hiphop for a year, she began taking contemporary classes as well. A year later, she joined CKDC's Junior company- for which she trains several hours a week and participates in weekly rehearsals. Most recently in 2016, she joined a hiphop group, led by D'Ron L. Yancey : Reine.
