Song Hee Lee, director of the Song Hee Lee Dance Company and dance instructor at the Lotus Music and Dance School, is a Korean traditional dancer from Korea. After graduating from Busan Women’s University with a BA in Korean traditional dance, she joined the Busan Metropolitan Dance Company, where she danced for 18 years. After receiving positive reviews from the New York Times for her solo recital at the Hudson Guild Theater in 1997, she decided to remain in the US.
“Tradition & Beyond” is a multi-disciplinary project that explores traditional and contemporary choreography through an infusion of live world music. This unique project will be the culmination of Song Hee Lee’s artistic expression, giving Korean tradition a modern edge. Her world music ensemble will include Korean traditional instruments including the gayageum (Rami Seo) and haegeum (Hee Jung Han), and Western instruments such as the contrabass (Joonsam Lee), drum/percussions (Satoshi Takeishi), and electronic synthesizer (Matt Baker).
