  • Katy Yong has an extensive dance and movement background and training since the age of 8. Katy grew up immersed in Latin American, Chinese and American cultures. Her earlier studies involved Peruvian folklore, Afro-Peruvian and Chinese dances as well as jazz, ballet and modern. She holds a B.A. Degree in Dance and World Arts & Cultures from UCLA. Katy’s multi-disciplinary dance background includes dance therapy, modern release technique, Limon and Flamenco.

    Katy has studied with various choreographers including Anandha Ray, Joanne Burke, David Rousseve, Nina Martin, Trisha Brown, Alvin Ailey, Maria Benitez, Liliana De Leon-Torsiello and Yismari Ramos Tellez. Her performances include the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival (2012), Cuba Caribe (2010-2014), Salsa Rueda Festival (2010-2014) and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (1998).

    She currently performs with Las Que Son Son, a Cuban Dance Company, under the direction of Yismari Ramos Tellez. She feels blessed for living in a rich cultural melting pot that embraces her upbringing and provides a venue for her deep love of dance. As a performer and choreographer, she blends a large vocabulary of movement and styles that rhythmically flow together creating fluidity, grace and ample range of movement. As an instructor, she continues to be inspired by her students’ improvement, energy and dedication.
