Ryoko Yagyu

Born in Japan, Ryoko studied at Homura Tomoi Ballet School and at the Conservatory of Vienna. In 2003 she reached the semi-finals of the Prix de Lausanne and has since performed many leading roles with Spain’s Pasodos Dance Company, Ballet Ireland, Irish Youth Ballet and Vienna Festival Ballet.

“It’s been great working with so many choreographers on new work; to be able to directly see their thoughts and what they want to get across in each piece has been invaluable for me.” – Ryoko Yagyu
