A Texas Woman’s University student has been chosen for the World Dance Alliance’s 2017 International Young Choreographer Project.
Yeajean Choi, a TWU master of fine arts student, will be one of eight choreographers — and the only U.S. student — traveling to Kaohsiung, Taiwan for the program.
During the three-week residency in July, choreographers will be given two weeks to rehearse with a group of Taiwanese dancers before final performances during the third week.
Choi, who specializes in multimedia choreography, also teaches Korean dance at her Dallas-based nonprofit dance company, Jean Korean Dance Company. There, students use kinesthetic, auditory, and visual learning styles to create dances. Her work fuses film and visual arts with dance to create unique routines.
Prior to attending TWU, Choi received her bachelor of fine arts and master of interdisciplinary studies of arts degrees from the Sungkyunkwan University.
