Born in 1994 in Nagoya, Japan, MONA began dancing at the age of five after being encouraged by her mother, who saw her dancing along to a music program. Growing up in a studio focused on dance contests, she went on to become the representative for the Tokai region in elementary school and achieved a national championship in high school, establishing herself as a renowned dancer in the Tokai region.
In 2019, MONA relocated to Tokyo and expanded her dance career as a choreographer, a backup dancer for artists, and a stage performer, quickly rising to national fame with her innate talent. She has choreographed for world-famous artists such as TWICE and NAYEON, as well as domestic acts like AI, Awich, JP THE WAVY, LIL LEAGUE from EXILE TRIBE, &TEAM, Mori Calliope, ONE OK ROCK, ¥ellow bucks, An Unyuuri, among others, appearing in their live performances and music videos, solidifying her reputation as a top dancer receiving continuous attention and offers.
