Entering 2022 with Embodied Virtuosity

OUR 2021 CREATIVE IMPACT

Led by Founder and Artistic Director Yin Yue, YY Dance Company is a not-for-profit contemporary dance company based in New York City. The company's mission is to create, produce, and perform works of dance featuring Yin's signature FoCo Technique™, a unique synthesis of Chinese classical and contemporary western dance traditions. The company proudly collaborates with world-class dancers, musicians, and artists while teaching workshops to expand educational opportunities for all movers in the world of dance.

The last two years have been nothing if not challenging. YYDC, like so many other artistic entities and creative organizations, has persevered to continue its mission despite a lack of access to studios, theaters, and the alchemy of live performance. We created original works for highly-acclaimed companies such as Martha Graham Dance Company, Boston Ballet, Gibney Company, Tisch School of The Arts, and Peridance Contemporary Dance Company. Yin led teaching programs at numerous schools and universities and led nearly 300 hours of workshops and FoCo™ training both virtually and in-person to thousands of dancers across the globe. In November, YYDC preformed in front of live audience for the first time in two years during the 92Y Harkness Mainstage Series at Kaufmann Concert Hall with RIPPLE, which was praised by the critics as "a totally captivating performance" (David Mead, Seeing Dance).

Additionally, on December 6th, Yin will receive the 2021 Dance Magazine Harkness Promise Award for innovation in choreography at New York's Guggenheim Museum. We are enormously proud of the dedication and excellence Yin has shared through her choreographic craft and look forward to celebrating her achievement.

OUR 2022 VISION

YYDC will continue its mission in creating original dance works and teaching both virtual and in person classes. The company has received a commission from Asia Society to present a new quartet titled Ember on May 25th. Ripple, the ensemble piece will be presented in Aug at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival. In Nov, the company will tour to Padua, Italy and bring with them two powerful and dynamic works. Meanwhile, artistic director Yin Yue will take on two commissions in Sep and Oct.

We are asking you to consider making a gift today to help ensure our company's ongoing work now and into the future. We are deeply grateful for the passion and generosity of our supporters - without you the mission of YYDC would not be possible.
