​Sawako Ama, Reverend
Holistic Living Educator

Performing Artist, Choreographer

Tea Ceremony Facilitator

Breathwork & Meditation Insructor


Sawako was born and raised in a Buddhist temple in the southern part of Japan. The safety and sacred feeling she felt being in the temple throughout her life has become an important part of her expression when she dances and teaches. She has studied many different styles of dance all through her life including: ballet, jazz, African, Hula and Okagura (Japanese sacred shrine dance) and she brings her own unique expressions into the art of bellydance and beyond.

She is a multi-award winning dancer who has been performing at various venues and events in Northern California and Japan for over 10 years. She started as a member of American Tribal Style Bellydance Troupe MANASA based in Sacramento. Since 2010 she has been integrating solo dance including Raqs sharqi (Egyptian style bellydance), tribal fusion style (contemporary) bellydance and sacred/ritualistic dance into her work with a focus on the connection between body, mind and soul. She celebrates the art of life by blending diverse cultures in her original style of bellydance. With a sacred intention, her improvisational dance style invokes a passion and spirit of celebrating life and following our hearts desire. She is also a member of Sambandha, music of the world, as a dancer and a musician and is a member of Kohaku, traditional and contemporary Japanese performing arts.
