Take class with the artists of KYL/D!

Class Description: Kun-Yang Lin is founder and Executive Artistic Director of Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). Lin’s signature CHI Awareness Practice 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 Practice 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.

*for pre-professional and professional dancers
