Founded in 1988, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company's mission is to act as a potent stimulus for expansion of the dance/arts world through the creation of new dance works, production of dance concerts, and education/outreach classes. Dance Magazine has lauded the Company’s "stunning performers (and) passionate dancing" and praised Kim’s choreography as "highly charged."
Each year, WHITE WAVE engages some 11,000 audience members and presents 200 dance companies and 1,000 performing artists through its Festivals Project.
In addition, WHITE WAVE Young Soon Kim Dance Company tours nationally and internationally. In June 2012, it made a triumphant return to Korea and brought its 16-member troupe, with live music and video projections, to three cities.
