WHITE WAVE DANCE presents the 8th Annual SoloDuo Dance Festival, founded by WHITE WAVE’s Artistic Director Young Soon Kim, began in 2016 and will feature 30 dancemakers from the New York Metro area and across the country this year, as well as international dancers from Korea, Japan and Germany who were selected by a panel of distinguished presenters and dance artists.


The program celebrates the unique art of the solo and duet—formats often favored by early-stage choreographers as their companies begin to find their paths within the dance world. The Festival creates new opportunities to display the latest work of both emerging and mid-career choreographers, offering vivid experiences for audiences with the goal of discovering and nurturing young talent. Dixon Place exemplifies a one of-a kind intimate venue that is particularly well-suited to showcase the artistry of solo and duet performances.


White Wave’s mission is to act as a potent stimulus to expand the horizons of dance by producing dance concerts, festivals, residencies, and educational activities. White Wave provides dancemakers an opportunity to congregate, create, and present new works on prestigious stages to the discerning NYC audience.
