Shoko started her ballet training with Patrina Borrer, where she gained her passion for dance. At 15, she was accepted into the full time program of the Australian Ballet School, where she received a Certificate IV in ballet. The following year she became the first from Australia to successfully audition for the Moscow State Academy of Choreography, better known as the Bolshoi Ballet School, often named as one of the top classical ballet schools of the world. After an amazing three years of dance experience, she graduated with a Diploma in Dance under the guidance of Natalia Revich. Shoko’s professional experience ranges from solo roles in Opera Australia to being a guest performer of Nayika Indian Dance Company. Her teaching experience ranges from three years to adult and has successfully completed her RAD Teachers Certificate, having been mentored by Miss Christine.
