Kun-Yang Lin, a relative newcomer to Philadelphia, arrived in the city in 2003 to began teaching in Boyer College of Music and Dance.

Not content to limit his instruction to a university setting, Lin opened the Chi Movement Arts Center in South Philly two years ago with his partner Ken Metzner. The space has become a hub for dance education in the neighborhood and serves as a home base for Lin’s thriving company, Kun-Yang Lin / Dancers.
