For the culmination of their year as the Gardner Museum's Choreographers-in-Residence, duo All Ready gives the world premiere of three newly commissioned performances inspired by—and created especially for—the Museum.

Each piece showcases All Ready's signature fusion of hip-hop and Latin dance. Music by Korean sensation DJ Donghyun is mixed from flamenco recordings given to Isabella by her close friend John Singer Sargent.

About All Ready

All Ready is a spirited female dance duo from South Korea composed of longtime friends Salang Yang and Hyein Kang. Yang and Kang met 13 years ago at a Latin dance school in Seoul, where they learned ballroom, modern, and Latin dances such as cha cha, rumba, samba, jive, limba, and other styles that have come to influence their work today. They named themselves "All Ready" because they are "all ready to perform all kinds of dance." Their dance and performance style also caught the attention of Jennifer Lopez, which brought them to NBC's 2019 season of "World of Dance."

About DJ Donghyun
