Japanese Shiho Tokuda is a superb, fast and elegant dancer with a unique “old school flamenco” technique refined in every detail by her physical strength and her emotional commitment. The outcome is a breathtaking intense experience that leaves no spectator unaffected.
In order to embody her skills and widen her views and experiences Shiho Tokuda started her activities in Europe last year.
From there she is today working with workshops and flamenco classes, as well as shows in various European countries and Central American countries like Cuba.
