Ayumi Fukushima was inspired to start breaking after seeing her older sister, B-Girl Narumi, dance. She began learning dance in Canada and found it helped her gain confidence to express herself more fully. With her energetic, free flowing style, she has won a number of battles as an individual and also as part of the Body Carnival crew, and made history as the first b-girl to compete in the Red Bull BC One World Final. A professional dancer who performs and competes internationally in the evenings and weekends, Ayumi is an elementary school teacher in Kyoto by day.
