Over the past decade, Yin Yue has developed a rich and extensive body of original choreographic work. In addition to works performed by her namesake company, YYDC, leading dance companies have commissioned Yin to create and perform works based on her FOCO Technique, among them: Philadelphia Ballet, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, Limon Dance Company, Alberta Ballet, Balletto Teatro di Torino and Gibney Dance Company and many others. Yin has brought her teaching and choreography into outstanding school and university dance programs such as Tisch School of The Arts, Juilliard School, George Mason University, Rutgers University and Point Park University. Yin Yue was the winner of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago 2015 International Commissioning Project, winner of the 2015 BalletX Choreographic Fellowship, and winner of Northwest Dance Project’s 5th Annual Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition in 2013.
