KYL/D SATURDAY OPEN COMPANY CLASS WITH KUN-YANG LIN
<http://www.kyld.org/upcoming-events/2016/8/6/kyld-saturday-open-company-class-with-kun-yang-lin>

*KYL/D's Open Company Classes are back in full-swing! Every Saturday,
Artistic Director Kun-Yang Lin teaches his signature CHI Awareness
Technique. Read below for more info!*

*When: *Saturday's from 12:30-2:00 (Please check our FB
<https://www.facebook.com/kyldancers/> and our Google calendar
<http://www.kyld.org/class-schedule/> for updates on cancellations)

*Where: *CHI Movement Arts Center- 1316 S. 9th St. Philadelphia, PA 19147

*Cost: *$12 for Students/Professionals/PhiladelphiaDANCE.org members, $15
Drop-In.

*Class Description: *Lin's signature CHI Awareness Technique is the
foundational technique for Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers (KYL/D). It explores the
spaces where Western dance forms including ballet, modern, post-modern and
hip-hop meet the impulses of Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen
Buddhism. The class focuses on how, through modulation of breath (or "chi",
in Mandarin), weight and weightlessness co-exist simultaneously and energy
seamlessly transitions among explosive bursts of rapid, expansive phrase
work, and absolute stillness. Class begins quietly and gradually builds in
complexity, culminating in dynamic phrase work. CHI Awareness Technique
expands the perimeter of Western dance practices through an Eastern
perspective that reflects Lin's conception of dance as the ultimate
integration of body, spirit and mind.
