Naoe started doing ballet when she was 6 years old. At 24, she came down with Guillain-Barré syndrome which caused her to start studying Pilates and eventually become a Pilates instructor. Since then, she has been able to return to ballet. Naoe most recently appeared in Touch Me Not and in the first iteration of YTG's new show By the Hour as part of the TPAM Showcase.
Naoe's previous theatre appearances were Chess for the Tokyo International Players and perspectives for Tokyo Artistic Theatre Ensemble (TATE).
