About Us

KYL/D celebrates the ability of dance to integrate body, spirit and mind. The organization is a non-profit, professional, contemporary dance company based in South Philadelphia, hailed for its superbly trained dancers and inventive choreography. Founder and Executive Artistic Director, Kun-Yang Lin, utilizes multicultural insights from his ongoing research throughout Asia, creating a personal movement language suffused with strong spiritual underpinnings.

Services Offered

Programs: Creation & Performance; Services for Artists; Community Engagement; Education & Outreach.

Designed for students grades K-12, CHI Dance is modeled after CHI Awareness Practice, which has been cultivated for 20+ years by Kun-Yang Lin. The classes focus on developing the relationship of the moving body to breath. During CHI Dance, students learn fundamental dance technique through the lens of mindfulness, a meditative practice of maintaining a nonjudgmental state of awareness.
