"Abandon"

.

.

In this dance piece, the woman abandons both beauty and docility in favor of inner strength and power.

Juli Kim has performed in numerous venues mainly devoting her work to spreading the awareness of Korean culture to the younger generation and to non-Korean ethnic groups. Kim has taught Korean Dance classes at the La Canada Preparatory School and Flintridge Preparatory School, among many others. She has also collaborated with Dancecorp, Lula Washington Dance Theatre, The Latino Dance Project and other dance companies promoting diversity. Her most notable work was the production of Friendship Concert in 1997, in memory of the 1992 LA Unrest. The event raised scholarship money for inner city children.
In 2016 Kim founded The Artists' Platform, a non-profit organization that seeks to empower all artists by providing them with a platform for their work.
Kim's Korean classical/fusion work has been described as "both powerful and poetic in an improvised form based on rigorous training." Kim holds a Master's Degree in Piano Performance from USC.
