WHITE WAVE Dance Summer Workshop at Peridance
WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Co.
Repertory & Partnering class with Young Soon Kim & WHITE WAVE Dance
The New York based WHITE WAVE Dance led by Artistic Director Ms. Young Soon Kim offers a three-day workshop that allows dancers a first- hand opportunity to experience and learn the highly physical, spiritual and perceptual approach to dance that has earned the company its international reputation. In the classes, participants will learn the company’s distinctive technique that emphasizes the natural rhythms of fall and recovery, the conscious use of breath, and the interplay between weight and weightlessness. The series of exercises in the workshop provide dancers with a tool kit that underlines an organic approach that can easily be adapted to a range of choreographic styles.
Young Soon Kim will conduct repertory & partnering class with company members. During the three days the class progresses to learning specific phrases and partnering techniques from the company’s repertory. Described by international dance critics as “exhilarating, visually stunning and emotionally rich,” the technique brings improvisational and awareness that aims to awaken all the senses.
The Georgia Straight's Gail Johnson raved that "This beautifully crafted piece...present[s] moments of subtle tension, but it pulses most profoundly with harmony." “In duets, trios, and other ever-shifting configurations, things unfurl organically; there’s a natural, poetic rhythm here that hums beneath, as if to imply things are unfolding as they should—whether it’s within a couple or the universe itself.”
