Parsons Dance - under the Artistic Direction of David Parsons - will kick off its 2017 season, dedicated to the life and legacy of the company's great friend and dance advocate Alexander J. Dubé, at New York City's historic Joyce Theater from May 16 - May 28. The company will present an exciting mixed bill program, featuring the world premieres of Hello World by David Parsons, UpEnd by Ephrat Asherie and David Parsons, and Daniel by Parsons Dance GenerationNow Fellow and company member Omar Román de Jesús. Following the opening performance on May 16, Parsons will hold its annual Gala at The Cabanas at La Sirena in the Maritime Hotel with tickets starting at $1000. Individual tickets for the Joyce Theater, priced from $10-$60, can be purchased by phone at 212-242-0800 or online at www.joyce.org. The Joyce Theater is located at 175 Eighth Avenue at 19th Street. Celebrated for its virtuosic technique, powerful athleticism and sexy ensemble, Parsons Dance is excited to return to The Joyce Theater's intimate Chelsea home with the world premiere of David Parsons' Hello World. Born from a unique collaboration with Drexel University's Expressive and Creative Interaction Technologies Center (ExCITe) and Dr. Youngmoo Kim, Parsons' Hello World explores the evolution of man and machine. Using highly sophisticated custom-built drones, this work embraces a technology-driven vision of the future. The company will also present the premiere of UpEnd, a collaboration between Bessie-award winning B-Girl Ephrat Asherie and David Parsons. Together, they infuse the classic Parsons style with elements of street dance, creating a dynamic new movement vocabulary, set to a commissioned score by NYC composer Marty Beller. Finally, Parsons' company member and GenerationNow Fellow Omar Román de Jesús will premiere his new work, Daniel, inspired by an eye-opening interaction he had while participating in Parsons' educational initiative for dancers on the Autism spectrum. This contemporary piece explores the youthful and uninhibited pursuit of joy. The program will also feature audience favorites and classics such as Hand Dance, Swing Shift, and the iconic Caught. This year, the company will present three Family Matinees at The Joyce, offering audiences the kid-friendly repertory of Daniel, Sleep Study, UpEnd, Caught, and In The End, as well as the opportunity to meet the dancers in person. Family Matinees will take place on May 21, 22, and 27 at 2pm. The company will also present a Relaxed Performance as part of its new Autism Initiative to bring dance to audiences of all abilities, featuring a program of Swing Shift, Sleep Study, Hand Dance, and UpEnd on May 25th at 12:00pm. Tickets for the Relaxed Performance should be arranged directly with Parsons Dance: info@parsonsdance.org.

On May 24 through May 27, New York Live Arts (NYLA) will present the Purchase Dance Company in a diverse program dedicated to the memory of Trisha Brown, a pioneer of postmodern dance, who influenced generations of artists. Members of the Purchase Dance Company are selected from the college's highly competitive Conservatory of Dance BFA program at Purchase College, SUNY, which, according to the New York Times is “one of the country’s most highly regarded dance conservatories.” The Company will perform Trisha Brown’s landmark work Glacial Decoy, Doug Varone’s Mass, and Norbert de la Cruz’s Talsik. The Company has the distinct advantage of working closely with some of today’s most groundbreaking choreographers. Three graduating seniors will perform solos choreographed or re-staged for them by guest choreographers. Sierra Herrera will perform Darn Rite by Ana Maria Lucaciu, Claire Deane will perform Scherzo 300 by Deborah Lohse, and Jacqueline Calle will perform “Dust Phrase” from Story/ by Bill T. Jones, Artistic Director of NYLA. In addition, an exhibition, entitled Interpretations, will display a selection of powerful photography by Purchase College junior Joy-Marie Thompson. The exhibit pays homage to historic images of African American dancers by recreating the original images in order to introduce them to a new audience. Among the images is Thompson’s interpretation of Tseng Kwong Chi’s famous photo from 1982 featuring NYLA Artistic Director Bill T. Jones painted by Keith Haring. Tickets are $10 for seniors/students, $15 advance purchase; and $20 day of performance.

ABOUT // Bryn Cohn + Artists presents the first full - length NYC preview of 4AM, a kinesthetic exploration of intersections between science and spirituality, reimagined through rave and trance culture. Artistic Director Bryn Cohns kinetic and explosive choreography illuminates the extreme risk and sensuality that emanate from relinquishing inhibition and surrendering to sensation. Through the companys ferocious investment in penetrable and fleeting connections and in the worlds they inhabit, the voyage of 4AM is at once surreal and delicate. From ethereal to dim revealings, 4AM unleashes what occurs when we fully loose ourselves in our bodies, in our environment and in one another.

ABOUT DANCERS FOR GOOD: During the summer of 2015 dancer Michael Apuzzo of Paul Taylor Dance Company, and event planner/former Broadway performer Eric Gunhus came up with the idea to bring a new and fresh event to East Hampton: a dance festival of some the most prestigious dance companies and prominent dancers in the world, sharing their gifts to raise funds in support of the arts and the local community. Michael & Eric soon partnered with author and fashion/food expert Hal Rubenstein, engineering VP David Nickle and their not-for-profit Fund In The Sun Foundation, an organization with a long history of successful benefits in Fire Island Pines. The four decided to combine their efforts and the collaboration brought Dancers For Good to life with last summer’s well-received inaugural event. The name Dancers For Good is two-fold in meaning: Dance is a discipline that stays with the dancer for life…for good. Additionally, this event brings together incredible dancers eager to give their time, talents and energy for charitable philanthropy…to do good. This celebration allows all of us an opportunity to experience Dancers For Good.

Doug Varone and Dancers Summer Workshop 2017 June 4 - 23, 2017 New York City's famed Doug Varone and Dancers will offer Summer Workshop 2017, an immersive, three-week workshop for pre-professional and professional dancers, at Purchase College.   "The 2017 Summer Workshop marks our 18th year of teaching and sharing our work and process," said Doug Varone, artistic director of Doug Varone and Dancers.  "I've always seen this intensive as a way of channeling the philosophy of the dances we create into a shared experience. For three weeks, we'll live together, work together, create together, and grow together. The Company builds a safe haven that allows you to challenge yourself in both mind and body and explore the individual qualities that we each possess as artists. I am confident that the personal teaching approach of the Company will leave you with new ideas, new answers and new questions about why we all do what we do: DANCE." The workshop includes: Pilates/Morning Warm Up (optional): This class consists of a series of mat exercises developed by Joseph Pilates in combination with somatic and rehabilitation exercises that strengthen the body's core muscles and connect the mind and body. This class will prepare participants for a full day of dancing. Taught by former company member Stephanie Liapis.   Modern Technique: This highly technical, movement-based class investigates the line of human movement and how it can affect the broader strokes of our dancing. Through the expansive use of the back and limbs, Varone's style will be explored through an emphasis on breath, strength, dynamic lyricism and musicality.   Phrase Work: This class investigates individual phrases created on the spot as well as phrases from Company repertory. Students will focus on quick assimilation and exploration of movement in terms of quality and musicality.   Ballet: This class encourages the individual dancer to be their whole self within the material, and to nurture and expand the form's technical and expressive parameters from barre work to flight while exploring the ever shifting balance between rigor and ease. Each student will take ballet in the afternoon for half of the three weeks. Taught by Megan Williams.   Improvisation: The class will provide an opportunity for students to hone in on their individuality, creativity, and ability to make choices in the moment. Each student will take improvisation in the afternoon for half of the three weeks. Taught by former company member, Keith Johnson.   Each student will also choose one elective class from the list below for the entirety of the three weeks. Repertory - Large Work: Company members will stage a section of one of Varone's larger group works on participants for an informal performance at the end of the workshop. The class will focus on movement dynamics and spatial awareness within group choreography, as duets and solos gather seamlessly into group explosions of choreographed chaos. Repertory - Exploring Excerpts: This class will spend short intense spans of time exploring excerpts (i.e. duets, trios, etc.) from a variety of pieces, offering an overview of Varone's work. Through this investigation, the class will experience the wide range of movement dynamics, emotional nuance and spatial architecture inherent in Varone's choreography. Choreographic Devices with Doug Varone: The teacher will emphasize compositional structure and explore new devices for expanding and inventing material. A large body of material will be created, varied and manipulated both in and out of the studio, pushing towards the development of a new work utilizing the material built in class. New Work: This class will focus on the creation of a new work by former company member, Keith Johnson. Participants will be involved in the creative process and will have the opportunity to explore the personal and performance aspects of the dance throughout the three weeks. Performance Skills: In this class, dancers will examine how to use time, focus, awareness and identity as tools to explore the performance experience and build a performance practice. We will strive for authenticity and expressivity in daily discussion, observation and comprehensive movement exercises. Performance Skills will be taught by former company member, Stephanie Liapis. DOUG VARONE, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone works in dance, theatre, opera, film, and fashion. He is a passionate educator and articulate advocate for dance.

Known for its highly-imaginative dance theater works and collaborative projects, ANNE-MARIE MULGREW AND DANCERS COMPANY (AMM & DCO) presents its annual Home Season concert, Celebrating 31. Program highlights include the premiere of the whimsical One Minute Dances for Small Spaces to an assorted sound/music score choreographed by Anne-Marie Mulgrew, Artistic Director; rarely seen Dance 4 Camera works in collaboration with Carmella Vassor-Johnson and Mulgrew; and a guest appearance by Ashley Searles in Asya Zlatina’s Storm (2016). One Minute Dances also known as Postage Stamp Dances opens the program. This work raises questions about time, space and how today’s fast paced techno world impacts one’s attention span. Mulgrew notes, “I wanted to create smaller works that could be performed anywhere from outside spaces to concert stages. Whether for a solo performer or small group, I aspired to create a self-continued universe that comments on the world we live in.” The Next Chapter (2015) is a suite of four dances to music by Simon Wolf, Zoe Keating and Mason Bates, choreographed by Mulgrew for six dancers. This contemporary work explores states of being and sensations using the music as a point of departure. Each section is built on a word - lush, insist, relentless and it is. It features full-bodied movement that covers space, interspersed with lifts, partnering, as well as ensemble, duet and solo moments showcasing the physicality and expressiveness of the company. Guest artist Ashley Searles performs Asya Zlatina’s riveting solo Storm to music by Gustav Holst. Searles (dancer/choreographer) spent 15 years on the New York scene performing with Parsons Dance, Moving Theater and Liz Lerman. Zlatina danced with Koresh Dance Company since 2008 and is embarking on a career as choreographer, and adjunct professor at Stockton University. AMM & DCO Company dancers include Sean Thomas Boyt, Kate Lombardi, Ixchel Mendez, Leslie Ann Pike, Jorge Rullan, and Olivia Wood with a cameo appearance by Mulgrew. There will be a meet and greet with light refreshments with the company following each performance.

»Creation« is the first collaboration of Sasha Waltz with Iris van Herpen, Urs Schönebaum and Soundwalk Collective – all four of them do interdisciplinary work and seek exchange across artistic and academic fields. The dutch artist and fashion designer Iris van Herpen combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative digital technologies to produce her visionary art. Her sculptural creations, which are simultaneously organic and technological, sometimes appear to combine with the body like a second skin, at other times cover the body like a suit of armor or a shell. With his light designs, Urs Schönebaum creates spaces for theater and opera productions, exhibitions, performances and installations around the world for artists such as Marina Abramovic, Robert Wilson or Michael Haneke. The international art and music trio Soundwalk Collective (Berlin/New York) combines anthropology, ethnography, psycho-geography, the observation of nature, and explorations in recording and synthesis in their genre-bending sound compositions. The Collective is currently part of the documenta 14 in Athens/Kassel, their recent work among others features a collaboration Patti Smith in their acclaimed album »Killer Road«. For »Creation« Sasha Waltz with her 14 dancers examines the phenomena of existence against the background of a disrupted society: power and a lack of power, dominance and weakness, freedom and control, community and isolation.

Meet Captain Bucko and his scurvy crew, on the crest of the most bountiful whale hunt of their careers. But where does mans ambition end? How do you lay down your harpoon and bring home the haul when the thrill of the hunt consumes you? Come join the slaughter ye salty dogs! Set in the heart of San Francisco's historic maritime center, this site-specific original production uses the provocative humor of bouffon* to investigate religion, natural resource consumption, racism and privilege in maritime history and juxtapose these subjects with our modern times. *A form of grotesque satirical physical theatre in which characters on the outskirts of society use subversive humor and ecstatic play to highlight ignored or marginalized issues. Antic in a Drain combines circus, clown, bouffon and improvisational audience interaction, developing extreme characters and telling stories from the fringes, igniting dialogue and change within communities around ignored or taboo social issues. June 10 - 23, 2017 Nine performances: June 10 - 11, 14 - 18, 22 - 23 at 7-8:30PM (90 minutes) Doors open 30 minutes before the show Tickets will NOT be sold at the door for this production as tickets cannot be sold on park property.

BREAKING BOUNDARIES AND BUILDING BRIDGES THROUGH DANCE - FJK DANCE FUSION EVENING - JUNE 13 - KAYE PLAYHOUSE, NYC - HUNTER COLLEGE On the heels of their two-month, 31-city tour of China, Fadi J. Khoury’s FJK Dance will return to NYC on Tuesday, June 13 in “A Fusion of Culture and Dance, A Message of Peace” at The Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College, 7pm (68th street between Lexington and Park Avenues). The FJK Dance mix of contemporary ballet, Argentinian tango, ballroom and Middle Eastern dance hopes to, through its distinctive dance fusion, facilitate an understanding between cultures and break boundaries. FJK Artistic Director Fadi J. Khoury hails from Baghdad, Iraq, where he grew up surrounded by the folkloric music and dance of Arab culture. While FJK’s Middle Eastern influences are strong, the company’s choreography exhibits a distinctive mix of styles. Three original works, featuring FJK’s international cast of ten dancers, will include MUNDO (works in process), REFLECTIONS (2016) and ECHOES (2015). According to Mr. Khoury, “this program is an opportunity to communicate peace, diversity, tolerance and harmony, to educate and share the endless possibilities in finding connections within our differences. “The FJK international touring program has helped to fulfill our goal to raise awareness of the values of freedom and diversity, and most of all the opportunity and hope the USA has for refugees and immigrants. Through our performance we also hope to celebrate Middle Eastern heritage, and raise awareness of the positive and artistic influence of this culture. I hope to inspire through my journey.”

Her company, Rastro, was chosen from a large pool of talented applicants as Triskelion’s first recipient of the Resident Artist program, receiving 100 hours of rehearsal space from January to June 2017 in which to create. "Cancionero" is a nostalgic piece that explores the dichotomy of being alone while within a sea of people. Very much like living in NYC, for many, it investigates that sense of being connected while at the same time feeling very isolated. The movement, combining simple gestures and elaborate choreography, exploits the humanness of the body and its beauty, through a diverse musical backdrop.

Ballet East will close the 2016-2017 season with the premier production, Coppelia. The production provides an opportunity for family and friends to witness the progression that children of the school have made during their time training with Ballet East. Primary through Pre-Professional students will perform selections choreographed to display all forms of technique in the mixed rep portion of the performance. The second portion of the performance showcases the students of the school along with guest dancers performing the debut production of the ballet, Coppelia. Our 2017 guest artist is Irlan Silva, Soloist with the Boston Ballet.  Mr. Silva will dance the role of Franz. Coppelia is the story of Dr.  Coppélius,  a doctor who has made a life-size dancing doll. It is so lifelike that Franz, a village youth, becomes infatuated with it and sets aside his true heart's desire, Swanilda. She shows him his folly by dressing as the doll,  pretending to make it come to life and ultimately saving him from an untimely end at the hands of the inventor. The story begins during a town festival to celebrate the arrival of a new bell. The town crier announces that,   when it arrives, anyone who becomes married will be awarded a special gift of money. Swanilda and Franz plan to marry during the festival. However,   Swanilda becomes unhappy with Franz because he seems to be paying more attention to a girl named Coppélia, who sits motionless, reading on the balcony of Dr. Coppelius' house.  Franz is mesmerized by her beauty and is determined to attract her attention.   Still upset with Franz,  Swanilda shakes an ear of wheat to her head, if it rattles, then she will know that Franz loves her. Upon doing this, however, she hears nothing. When she shakes it by Franz's head, he also hears nothing, but he tells her that it rattles.   However,  she does not believe him and runs away heartbroken. Later on, Swanilda finds the keys to Dr. Coppelius' house which gives her the idea of learning more about Coppélia.  She and her friends decide to enter Dr.   Coppelius' house. Meanwhile,  Franz develops his own plan to meet Coppélia, climbing a ladder to her balcony. Swanilda and her friends find themselves in a large room filled with life-size mechanical dolls. They   quickly wind them up and watch them move. Swanilda also finds Coppélia behind a curtain and discovers that she, too, is a doll. Dr. Coppelius returns home to find the girls. He becomes angry with them, not only for trespassing but for also disturbing his workroom. He kicks them out and begins cleaning up the mess. However, upon noticing Franz at the window, Coppélius invites him in. The inventor wants to bring Coppélia to life but,   to do that, he needs a human sacrifice. With a magic spell, he will take Franz's spirit and transfer it to Coppélia. After Dr. Coppelius offers him some wine laced with sleeping powder, Franz begins to fall asleep. The inventor then readies his magic spell.  However, Dr. Coppelius did not expel all the girls. Swanilda is still there, hidden behind a curtain. She dresses up in Coppélia's clothes and pretends that the doll has come to life. She wakes Franz and then winds up all the mechanical dolls to aid their escape. Dr.   Coppelius becomes confused and then saddened when he finds a lifeless Coppélia behind the curtain.  Swanilda and Franz are about to make their wedding vows when the angry Dr. Coppelius appears,   claiming damages. Dismayed at having caused such an upset, Swanilda offers Dr. Coppelius her dowry in return for his forgiveness. Franz tells Swanilda to keep her dowry and offers to pay Dr. Coppelius instead. At that point, the mayor intervenes and gives Dr. Coppelius a bag of money, which placates him.   Swanilda and Franz are married and the entire town celebrates by dancing.   Tickets range from $15 (student pricing with valid ID) to $35.  Tickets are CASH ONLY when purchased at the Eissey Campus Theatre.

What is failure, and how do we deal with it – as individuals, and as communities? In the new installation/performance FAILURE, choreographer and visual artist Laura Peterson uses language of dance and sculptural design to probe the national consciousness in the aftermath of 2016 Presidential election. Peterson zeroes in on the overwhelming pressure to compete, which is at the heart of the American way of life. Is a small defeat less devastating than a colossal mistake? What is the real outcome of the “winner takes all?”

Showcase featuring all-female talent from around the globe uniting communities through dance Featuring 7pm LOHH Dance Workshop Ladies of Hip Hop Ladies of Hip Hop (LOHH) is the brainchild of Michele Byrd-McPhee (executive director and founder), a self-taught hip hop dance forerunner and longtime feminist. She got her start in street dance as it took shape in the clubs that she frequented while growing up. The organization was established in 2004 with the goal of giving women an outlet to dance uninhibitedly and be themselves without the constraints of the male-dominated hip hop world infringing on them. LOHH is a steadfast force in the world of hip hop dance, that provides a constructive outlet for girls and women to proudly display their work. This progressive union of art and egalitarian philosophy also offers liberating workshops, artist exchange programs and inspiring and educational public talks. LOHH is expanding rapidly too; with events all over the US and Europe (Vienna, Sweden), they have burgeoning chapters in Canada and all the way across the globe in China. Bryd-McPhee carefully curates the LOHH participants, presenting a sterling showing of unbridled energy and heartfelt pieces. Amirah Sackett Amirah Sackett graduated with a B.F.A in Dance from the University of Minnesota and has studied at Tisch School of the Arts in NYC. Amirah has performed and had her choreography featured locally, nationally, and internationally. Amirah has been an active participant and 2009 -2010 dance curator for B-Girl Be, an international festival for women in hip-hop, at Intermedia Arts. Amirah was honored to receive a Jerome Foundation Travel/Study Grant for 2008-09, which allowed her to travel with fellow dancer and recipient Lisa Berman to Rotterdam, Holland. In 2011, Amirah created a show encouraging collaborative works between artists in hip-hop called “The Joint Project” as part of the Catalyst Series for Intermedia Arts. It was at this show that “We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic” debuted, combining Amirah’s love of hip-hop dance and her love of Islam. Amirah along with her dancers Iman and Khadijah have performed as “We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic” at events and school throughout the Twin Cities and abroad including “Band Together 2011 for ARC, “Day Of Dignity” at Masjid A’Nur, “Facing Race” Conference 2012 in Baltimore, MD, and at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum 2013 with Brother Ali. Amirah was honored to perform as a solo artist for Undocunation Denver in 2013 in Denver, CO. Amirah’s choreography was featured in Brother Ali’s music video “Mourning in America”, and is currently performing with Brother Ali at several events including “Sound Set 2013” in the Twin Cities, and the upcoming show “Taking it To the Streets” in Chicago, IL. Amirah currently resides in Chicago and is excited to have been chosen to represent hip-hop culture in Bangladesh as part of “Next Level” an initiative by the U.S. State Department and UNC. She will be teaching and choreographing with artists in Dhaka, Bangladesh in the month of November 2014. Amirah believes hip-hop culture, as a whole, gives voice to those often unheard and is a way to uplift, inspire, and bring change to those communities that need it the most.

“Tap City, The New York City Tap Festival” Presents “TAP ELLINGTON” AT JAZZ AT LINCOLN CENTER - The Appel Room Friday, July 14 at 7pm. "Tap City, the NYC Tap Festival," will celebrate jazz legend Duke Ellington and his contribution to the world of tap dance at “TAP ELLINGTON." The evening, presented in association with Mercedes Ellington, will celebrate Ellington’s music as well as his unique legacy of introducing, promoting and presenting tap dancers to audiences all over the world. TAP ELLINGTON is a highlight event of the American Tap Dance Foundation’s Tap City Festival week (July 8-15). Master of ceremonies Tony Waag and the Duke Ellington Center's Big Band conducted by Eli Yamin will join together in honor of this icon of American Jazz with tap dance performances by emerging raw talent, contemporary soloists and leading tap masters including Brenda Bufalino, Ayodele Casel, Mercedes Ellington, Lisa La Touche Ensemble, Caleb Teicher, Sarah Reich, Sam Weber, Josette and Joseph Wiggan, the New American Tap Orchestra and others. Duke Ellington composed a number of songs specifically for tap dancers, and many of America’s greatest tap dancers worked with Duke Ellington. Ellington wrote tunes such as Bojangles and the Tap Dancers Blues (to be performed at TAP ELLINGTON by Mercedes Ellington and Tony Waag), and incorporated the seminal tap dance solo "David Dance Before the Lord" into his "Concert of Sacred Music," often performed by tap dance virtuoso Bunny Briggs and the elegant rhythm tap dancer Buster Brown (1960’s to 1980’s). The Library of Congress “Tap Dance in America” Database, created by Constance Valis Hill, lists 195 records in their search engine under Ellington/Tap Dance.

Contemporary ballet company performs to Amy Winehouse music paired with sensual athleticism of YYDC’s Through the Fracture of Light Featuring 6pm pre-show panel with Christine Cox of BalletX, Yin Yue of YY Dance Company, and Stefanie Batten Bland of Company SBB moderated by Apollonaire Scherr. RSVP required, RSVP@CityParksFoundation.org BalletX BalletX, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet, unites distinguished choreographers with an outstanding company of dancers to forge new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace. Founded in 2005 by Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, and now under the direction of Cox as Artistic & Executive Director, BalletX challenges the boundaries of classical ballet, producing new works of the highest quality and integrity. These pieces bring the combined visions of choreographers and dancers to life and cultivate in audiences a collective appetite for bold, new dance. Following touring performances in 2016, which included residencies at the prestigious Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Vail International Dance Festival, and NY’s The Joyce Theater, BalletX continues to win over audiences and dance critics around the country. The Boston Globe praised BalletX’s “10 superb dancers,” naming the company in its top ten dance performances of the year. And, The New Yorker described BalletX as “a place of choreographic innovation.” YY Dance Company Artistic Director Yin Yue is internationally recognized as a versatile performer and choreographer. Born and raised in Shanghai, China, she trained rigorously in technically-demanding and highly-structured Chinese classical and folk dance, as well as classical ballet, at the Shanghai Dance School. She earned her undergraduate degree at Shanghai Normal University, and her MFA in dance from NYU’s Tisch School of The Arts in 2008. Yin created an innovative contemporary dance technique FoCo (Folk-Contemporary) that soon caught the attention of the dance world. Yin Yue is currently a 2016-2017 Artist In Residence at 92Y Dance Center in New York. She was awarded First Place in Choreography at the 2016 Shanghai Professional Performance Competition and won the Hubbard Street Dance Chicago 2015 International Commissioning Project, the 2015 BalletX Choreographic Fellowship, and the Northwest Dance Project’s 5th Annual Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition in 2013. She was also selected as Emerging Choreographer of 2015 Springboard Danse Montreal, as well as a finalist at The A.W.A.R.D Show 2010! presented by The Joyce Theater Foundation. Yin’s contemporary dance company, YY Dance Co., is composed of freelance dance artists, who collaborate with Yin in creating and performing choreographic works. They aim to discover powerful imagery by pushing bold athleticism within sensual and fluid movement. They’ve presented works at dance festivals such as schrit_tmacher Just Dance Festival 2016, New York International Fringe Festival, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Inside Out Festival, The Wave Rising Series, DUMBO DANCE Festival, The Current Sessions, Dancenow (NYC) at Joe’s Pub and many more. In addition, YYDC has performed at venues such as Joyce SoHo Theater, Peridance Theater, Lincoln Center Rosh Hall, Peridance Capezio Theater and New York Live Arts and many others.
