Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers

Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers is one of the country’s foremost contemporary Asian-American dance companies. Described as “deeply spiritual and remarkable” by Dance Magazine, the company celebrates the ability of dance to integrate body, mind, and spirit. This attention is evident in a recent Center grant to Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers that provided deeper meditation training for company members.
