Dear Member of the Press

You and your guest are cordially invited to an exciting event: A
Legacy in Tradition: Kang Sun Young Dance Company making their NYC debut
with a special performance at the New York State Theatre - Lincoln Center
(Broadway & 63rd Street), on Tuesday, August 8th at 7:30 pm. This is a
company of 60 members plus a 14 piece traditional Korean orchestra.

At the age of 12, over seventy years ago, Kang Sun Young began her lessons
from Dance Master, Han Seong Jun (1874-1942). He would later be known as a
pioneer in Korean traditional dance; establishing in 1930, the first Korean
dance academy, to preserve traditional Korean music and dances including the
"Crane Dance" and "Tae Pyung Mu." Today, Kang Sun Young, is known as the
sole successor to his dances and actively preserves traditional Korean
dance. She established the Kang Sun Young Traditional Dance Institute in
1951. In 1962, she began her 20 years as the national choreographer for the
Korean National Dance Company at the National Theater. Kang has faithfully
preserved the traditional dances taught to her and also created original

The Kang Sun Young Dance Company, including Kang herself (possibly her last
time on stage) will perform the treasured traditional dances that she has
devoted her life to preserve including dances that she also created which
are now traditional in Korean dance repertory. On stage will be four
generations, Master Han Seong Jun's dances, Kang Sun Young, her students and
her students' students performing a Legacy in Tradition. The engagement is
presented by: The Ministry of Culture and Tourism Republic of Korea; The
Cultural Heritage Administration; City of Anseong; Korea National Tourism
Organization; Korea Central Daily News; Korean Cultural Service New York;
The Korean American Association of Greater NY; The Korean American
Association of Greater NJ; The Tae Pyung Mu Initiation Academy; and The Kang
Sun Young Arts Organization.

As soon as possible please contact me by e mail: to make your press reservation. I will personally have
your tickets beginning 30 minutes prior to the performance. I will be at
the far left side of the box office.
