Led by Founder and Artistic Director Yin Yue, YY Dance Company is a not-for-profit contemporary dance company based in New York City. The company's mission is to create, produce, and perform works of dance featuring Yin's innovative choreography in national and international venues. The company is proud to collaborate with world class dancers, musicians and artists throughout the world.
YYCD boasts national and international touring credits, having presenting original works at prestigious dance festivals such as Schrit_tmacher Festival in Aachen, Germany (attended in 2016, 2018, and 2019) in addition to Jacob's Pillow and an evening-length presentation in China.
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, YYDC has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel its in-person programming for the remainder of 2020, including our Summer Intensive and Company Audition as well as the performance of our new evening length work entitled Citizen II, originally scheduled for its world premiere in September 2020. However, YYDC is using this time of social distancing and isolation to explore new creations, to provide online educational programming, and to manifest virtual artistic collaborations. Like many of our fellow artists, we are working in a new and unknown space, while continuing to cultivate new creativity and works of contemporary dance artistry.
We are asking you to consider making a gift today to help ensure our company's ongoing work now and into the future. We are deeply grateful for the passion and generosity of our supporters - without you the mission of YYDC would not be possible.
