SHL Dance Company history

Song Hee Lee Dance Company

Established by Ms. Song Hee Lee in January 2000, the Song Hee Lee Dance Company is an international dance troupe performing the traditional forms of Korean dance and contemporary dance. The Company is divided into four parts: The Contemporary Division, The Professional Folkloric Division, the Adult Division “Chum Sarang Donggoo Hay” and the Children’s division “Cheongsah Chorong”.

While exploring the connections between east and west, ancient and modern, secular and sacred, Ms. Lee has found a way to reach out to eastern and western communities. The aesthetic standards of Korean performing arts are usually related to nature and natural environments. Beauty in Korean performing arts is a sensation empirically developed through natural phenomena related to human life. Based upon the aesthetics of Korean performing arts, the Song Hee Lee Dance Company seeks to meld traditional and contemporary, as well as eastern and western influences.

The Song Hee Lee Dance Company provides lectures, workshops and performances to schools, universities, community based organizations, and concert audiences, nationally and internationally.

The Song Hee Lee Dance Company has been invited to give workshops, performances, and lectures and participates in competitions, parades & festivals throughout North America, North Africa, Europe, and Asia.
