Artistic Director Yin Yue of YY Dance Company is a versatile performer and choreographer. After graduating with a MFA in dance from NYU's Tisch School of The Arts in 2008, she quickly started to gain attention as a highly original choreographer and performer among her peers. Yin Yue was winner of BalletX First Choreographic Fellowship, winner of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago International Commissioning Project 2015, Emerging Choreographer of Springboard Danse Montreal 2015, winner of Northwest Dance Project 5th Annual Pretty Creatives International Choreographic Competition 2013, Audience Choice Award of Dancenow[NYC] at Joe's Pub and finalist of The A.W.A.R.D Show in 2010. She was commissioned by Hubbard Street Dance, Northwest Dance Project, BalletX, Whim W’him, Bruce Wood Dance, SADC Tisch NYC, 10 Hairy Legs, New Dialect, Balletto Teatro Di Torino and more. She created an innovative contemporary dance technique - YY Technique that soon gained the attention of the dance world. The technique trains dancers to create a grounded, circular, fluid, detailed and dynamic performance that is rhythmic and powerful, yet sensual and graceful. The main themes of Yin's work are emotional experience, conflicts, and relationship in all their complexity. In this course, Yin will introduce "YY Technique" as well as her unique approach to contemporary dance performance and utilize such technique in phrase works that she will create on the students throughout the duration of the course.

The workshop requires sophisticated understanding of dance technique and demands strong physical and mental stamina. The workshop is 2 hours and it starts with an active follow-along warm up sequence that triggers your muscle to react, engage and sustain. A flow-based warm up will follow to elongate and strengthen the body that ends with a brief stretch routine. In the second part of the workshop a specific phrase work will be created or a suitable combination from a rep will be taught in details. Through learning the movement, students will experience the coaching style and learn the quality of the movement, By the end of each class, the phrase work will be performed in smaller groups. It is your time to fully embody the combination, apply the instructions and enjoy the dance.
