Hailed as splendid eleven member company, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company just returned from a triumphant tour throughout Korea & China. Dance Magazine has said of the company, “stunning performers, passionate dancing… Kim’s choreography is highly charged.” Artistic Director Young Soon Kim creates works of vision and movement in reverence and awe of the novelties that reflect the inner landscape of human emotion.

The company will perform Here NOW So Long, an ambitious work of courage and beauty in a dynamic collaboration with composer Marc Cappelli featuring live music that will explore the body’s limitless capacity for expression.

DoubleTake Dance is a New York City based contemporary dance company that strives to connect with a wide range of audiences through fusions of movement that are accessible and understandable to both the dancer and non-dancer. By creating choreography that is original and passionate; each piece is as unique as the artists who interpret it. Ashley Carter and Vanessa Martínez de Baños, co-founders of the company, will present a number of diverse and dramatic pieces, remixing contemporary styles with modern, lyrical, ethnic, vocal and neoclassical elements.
