The Korean Dance Studies Society of Canada (KDSSC) is a charitable organization in Toronto founded by Mi Young Kim, the artistic director. The KDSSC is a creative dance organization that collaborates across cultures and generations while honouring Korean tradition and culture.
Artistic director Mi Young Kim is the first Canadian professional Korean dancer, a pioneer and the leading authority on Korean dance. She immigrated to Canada in 1979 and started the Mi Young Kim Korean Folk Dance Institute. As the institute grew, it became the Korean Dance Studies Society Canada (KDSSC) in 1987. In order to promote Korean dance and the growth of culturally specific dance in general, there are 3 parts to KDSSC: the Soo Ryu School of Dance & Drum, the Mi Young Kim Dance Company and the Soo Ryu Dance Festival.
