From the first moment Rino Nakasone saw Michael Jackson perform on TV at her home in Okinawa, she was transfixed. Already an avid dancer, Rino studied his moves, rewinding the VCR until she could imitate him perfectly. In 1999, she moved to California to chase her dream of becoming a professional dancer. Since then, Rino has performed with Gwen Stefani, Christina Aguilera and Janet Jackson.
