“At the crest of the wave, all things are possible.”
The mission of WHITE WAVE YOUNG SOON KIM DANCE COMPANY, formed in 1988, is to inspire audiences of all cultures with the multi-dimensional aspects of complete dance staging and productions which reflect themes and philosophies both modern and timeless.
WWYSKDC is dedicated to broadening the boundaries of dance. It endeavors to enhance the language of dance through collaboration with music, poetry and visual art of many forms. Its vision is expansive, challenging the threshold of each medium, surging forward to create new possibilities. Artistic Director Young Soon Kim will create works of vision and movement language in reverence and awe of novelty that challenge and broaden the boundaries… reaching in to the inner territories of the imagination, passion and the spirit to create new expressions of dance.
The company’s activity is centered on an annual New York City season, presenting both new works and revivals of selected repertory, which are then presented nationally and internationally. In addition to large-scale public performances, the company will also present frequent showcases, classes and workshops for educational and other community institutions.
WWYSKDC wishes both to share its love of dance and to create works of such power, penetration and feeling that audiences renew their concern for other living beings, their connection with nature, and their appreciation for the rhythmic designs that unite us all.
