Born in Japan (Gero, Gifu pref.) on September 27th, 1979
Studied classic ballet at Osaka University of Arts. Omae mastered contemporary dance techniques and choreography methods in full-scale there, coming under the spotlight while in school. At age 24, shortly after starting a career as a professional dancer, his left leg below the knee was amputated due to car accident. There onwards, he took in movements from a wide range of genre including yoga, martial arts, rhythmic sportive gymnastics, etc, in order to continue dancing with a single leg. He managed to build up a unique, one-and-only dance style by devising the length of the artificial leg adjusted to each dance piece. In 2009, by collaorating with Noh actor Reijiro Tsumura in the piece produced by a world renowned choreographer Alessio Silvestrin, presented as a part of Cerulean Tower Noh Theater’s regular performance, came to prominence as an enchanting amputated dancer.
In 2010, he was given Rookie of the Year Award and Osaka Governor’s Award in performance arts at Naniwa Performing Arts Festival hosted by Japan Western Dance Association.
Omae is expanding his field by participating as a guest dancer in numerous traditional stages abroad such as in Tallin and Prague. He was also appointed as a brand ambassador for the major ballet-goods company Chacott’s new product “Tripure”.
Between 2015-2016, being featured in numerous NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) documentaries, he gained prominence with his one of a kind performance as a dancer beyond comparison.
Omae also performed solo at the Rio Paralympics closing ceremony in Sept., 2017, as the baton was passed to Tokyo. There he exhibited four continuous back handsprings with his single leg.
In December 2016, he was invited to an event to pump up Tokyo Olympic Paralympic Games organized by Japan’s prestigious singer AI, where he performed solo at the Nippon Budokan.
