Published May 13, 2014

YagerAbby_YangMingYager and Yang first met in New York City in 1995, while dancing with the Trisha Brown Dance Company. Since then, they’ve traveled the world — Greece, Russia, France, Korea and Taiwan — performing and teaching classes in modern technique, composition and improvisation. Ming was awarded the Taishin Arts Award three times, twice for Top Nine Performances of the Year in 2003 for his performances “Eastern Current” and “Spiderina” and once for Top Ten Performances of the Year in 2005 for his piece “Whitewater Sky.” In 2006, Abby received her MFA in dance from Hollins University and the American Dance Festival. Both will teach at the School of Dance during the spring 2012 semester, with both starting a seven-week position at the beginning of January and Abby closing out the last few weeks.
