Own Words

I founded and direct the premiere contemporary dance company of Washington, DC. www.dtsbco.com

My family immigrated to the Hawaiian Plantations in 1903. My parents are visual artists; I grew up in Santa Fe, NM. I attended English and Spanish bilingual schools. My nickname was “Chino.” There were many cultures and languages around me. When I discovered dance, I realized it was a universal language that can bridge cultural differences. My Korean American heritage is often a source of my choreographic inspiration. I devote my time to creating dances that explore the APIA experience.
