The Edge of 30 Degrees is Yin Yue's latest original creation for her namesake company YYDC. The performance includes three world premieres: "The Time Followed," "Stones and Kisses," and the highly anticipated ensemble piece, "Citizen." This exciting evening of new dance works is centered around the concept of time and our interactions with time itself. To create these innovative projects, Yin has assembled an impressive team of collaborators, featuring the dancers of YYDC, costume designer Barbara Erin Delo, lighting designer Christopher Chambers, and composers Juliane Jones and Doug Beiden who have created original musical scores exclusively for Yin's new work.

In addition to the performances, YYDC will host two workshops on May 31 and June 1 at 11:00 a.m. for advanced level dancers looking to expand their craft with training in Yin's "FoCo Technique," including excerpts from The Edge of 30 Degrees. Attendees of the workshop will have the unique opportunity to experience dancing "in-the-round" as Yin Yue has adapted the evening to fit a space with a 360 degree view.

YYDC, a New York City based not for profit contemporary dance company, is composed of freelance dancers and artists who collaborate with Yin in the creation and performance of her original choreographic works that are rooted in her signature FOCO Technique, an intricate, movement-based choreography that fuses elements of traditional folk and contemporary dance. The company aims to discover powerful imagery by pushing bold athleticism within sensual, fluid movement and taking risks by demanding an authentic presence from each individual voice.

Boasting touring credits in China and Germany, YYDC has performed at numerous world renowned dance festivals, including: SummerStage, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Inside Out, New York International Fringe Festival, The Wave Rising Series, DUMBO DANCE Festival, The Current Sessions, Dancenow [NYC], the Open Door Dance Festival in Iowa City, and, for the third time, the company has been invited to perform in Aachen, Germany at the opening week of Schrittmacher Festival 2019. YYDC has performed at Hanover International Choreographic Competition and venues such as Joyce SoHo Theater, Joe's Pub, Peridance Theater, Lincoln Center's Rose Hall, and many others.

In addition to teaching workshops and performing around the world, YYDC Dance Company also re-stages repertories at universities, including Rutgers, Johns Hopkins and Point Park University and creates new works for professional dance companies, such as its upcoming commission for Pennsylvania Ballet.
