Takanori Nakagome connects children in Japan, Africa, and the world through “Dance × the Internet”. He won the “All Japan Teen Dance Championship” while studying at university. After his graduation, he worked for Benesse. He then left his job and pursued his dream of “Traveling around the World and Teaching Dance to 10,000 Children!” Through his travel experiences, he was inspired to create a society where children around the world can meet, learn, and become friends beyond the differences of countries, languages, and cultures. After he came back to Japan, he opened “dance schools connected to the world” in Shonan and Tokyo. He is creating a space where the world and potential of children can happily grow while conducting dance exchange workshops in Japan and in the world. To this day he has taught dance to more than 15,000 people in 22 countries. In 2017, he was elected as one of the world’s “Global Shapers” – young leaders under the age of 33 – at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
