When & Where
WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company
WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company is a 10-member contemporary dance company formed in 1988. Its mission is to broaden the boundaries of dance. It endeavors to enhance the language of dance through collaboration with music, poetry and visual art of many forms.
WWYSKDC inspires 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 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.
Since 2001, WHITE WAVE’s Artistic Director Young Soon Kim has gained eminence as one of New York’s leading dance curators as producer of three annual festivals (DUMBO DANCE FESTIVAL, WAVE RISING SERIES and COOL NEW YORK DANCE Festival) at the WHITE WAVE John Ryan Theater in DUMBO, Brooklyn. For all of these productions, WHITE WAVE finds, nurtures and broadens the horizons for emerging and established dancemakers from around the world, a platform for companies who may not have the resources to stage full productions of their works, to such a vast audience. New work and/or repertory of WHITE WAVE is also featured.
Young Soon Kim and the company have appeared on many principal stages both in the US and the Far East — Joyce Theater, Kennedy Center, Dance Theater Workshop, Jacob’s Pillow, American Dance Festival, Theater at St. Clemens, Florence Gould Hall, Judson Memorial Church, Dancenow Downtown Festival, National Theater of Seoul (Korea), National Theater of Taipei (Taiwan), Hong Kong Academy of the Performing Arts, Ichibangi Theater (Japan), as well as at regional venues across the United States.
WHITE WAVE’s wide press coverage over the years has included interviews on Eyewitness News WABC-TV Channel 7's Five O'clock News, CNN’s International Inside Asia program, and features for WWOR-TV Channel 9’s 10 O’clock News and Fox 5 TV’s Good Day New York.
