Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D) seeks both male and female dancers for employment. (If you would like to register for the audition, See Open Positions Page).  The company is holding an "audition-shop" from 7/25-7/29. All classes will be taught by Artistic Director Kun-Yang Lin and are open to the public. If you would like to attend the workshop solely as a class, and not audition, click here to purchase a class online.

Class Description: Lin’s signature CHI Awareness Technique is the foundational technique for Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). It explores the spaces where Western dance forms including ballet, modern, post-modern and hip-hop meet the impulses of Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen Buddhism. The class focuses on how, through modulation of breath (or “chi”, in Mandarin), weight and weightlessness co-exist simultaneously and energy seamlessly transitions among explosive bursts of rapid, expansive phrase work, and absolute stillness. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in complexity, culminating in dynamic phrase work. CHI Awareness Technique expands the perimeter of Western dance practices through an Eastern perspective that reflects Lin’s conception of dance as the ultimate integration of body, spirit and mind.
