Founded by choreographer Yin Yue, Yin Yue Dance is a New York City-based contemporary modern dance company. Yin's works are dynamic and unique, the sensual yet powerful quality of her movement compliments the strong physical technique on which it relies. Yin Yue creates bold and entertaining performances about universal emotional experiences, conflicts and relationship, expressed through a wide range of dance styles. YYD promotes and exemplifies physical power in movement, utilizing controlled, subtle and precise gestures to reflect emotions in highly structured form. A combination of grace, effortless and explosiveness finds harmony and balance in each work.
The company’s mission is to find meaning in each movement, to investigate the subtle yet powerful visual images, to search and dig deeply into life in order to explore the personality of each dancer and bring it out in performance.
The company has performed in many venues and festivals in NYC including Jacob’s Pillow Inside Out Festival, Company performance at Salvatore Capezio Peridance Theater, The New York International Fringe Festival, Joyce SoHo Theater, Lincoln Center Rosh Hall, Food For Thought at St Mark's Church, Dance residency commissioned by DMAC-DUO Theater, DanceNOW[NYC] Festival at DTW(NYLA), DUMBO DANCE Festival, Wave Rising Series, Cool New York Dance Festival, La MaMa Moves New York International, The Current Sessions at The Wild Project and West Fest at Cunningham Studio.
