Native To Japan, Koko Started Dancing At Age Two And A Half

According to the Dance & Co. website (where she once worked), Koko was born in Kanagawa, Japan, as Koine Iwasaki on June 26, 1997. At age two, she travelled across the ocean with her family to settle in the United States. Koko started taking dance classes in South Florida when she was two and a half years old, and she remained a student there for the next 18 years.

While at Dance & Co, Koko trained in ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop. However, she did not have any experience with ballroom dancing. When she joined season 14 of So You Think You Can Dance at age 21, she met her current boyfriend, Kiki Nyemchek, who taught her everything she knows about ballroom dancing and has been obsessed with the particular dancing style since then.

Parents And Family

The Japanese native dancer took on Instagram on January 15, 2015, where she uploaded a snap of a memorial of Yuriko Iwasaki, who she mentioned as Baba. As per Japanese slang, Baba is a word used to say someone of elderly age, in most cases one's grandmother. According to her Instagram post, Koko's father's name is Teruhiko Iwasaki, and her grandmother's name is allegedly Yuriko Iwasaki.

Her father and mother immigrated from Japan hoping to live the best life and provide a better future for their children. She, along with her brother, grew up in South Florida, and when she was six years old, Koko went from liking dance to wanting to dance for the rest of her life. Her father is the owner as well as the head chef of a Japanese restaurant. She recently made a Facebook post thanking her mother and father for supporting her and motivating her to pursue a career in her passion of dancing.
