About Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D):
KYL/D is a professional contemporary dance company located in South Philadelphia. Hailed for its superbly trained dancers and inventive choreography, the internationally-active KYL/D probes at the limits of national identity. Drawing upon Eastern philosophies while expanding the perimeter of contemporary dance, Artistic Director Lin's zen-inspired practice of dance manifests in lush works of poetic sensibility that The New York Times says "create and inhabit worlds of their own."
KYL/D runs a variety of programs inluding artistic creation and performance, youth education and outreach, and services for dance artists.
Youth Education and Outreach: Designed for students in grades K-12, KYL/D's CHI Dance Program is modeled after Kun-Yang Lin/Dancer's signature CHI Awareness Technique. Learn more here: http://www.kyld.org/community-outreach/
Services for Dance Artists: KYL/D holds a quarterly presenting series, Inhale, which provides artists with free performance space, technical assistance, and audience comments by means of a written feedback form. Learn more here: http://www.kyld.org/inhale/
