After graduating, she joined the Tulsa Ballet as a Company and Center for Dance Education pianist for five seasons. Yee Sik is thrilled to have joined the Kansas City Ballet as a pianist in June 2016. In 2012, Yee Sik was the pianist for the Tulsa Ballet’s production of Dracula, for which her playing was praised. She was also the piano soloist with the Tulsa Symphony for the Tulsa Ballet’s production of Lady of the Camellias in 2013. Tulsa World called her “the true musical hero of the evening.” Yee Sik has served as a dance accompanist at the Interlochen Arts Camp, the Dance Department of the University of Iowa, and the University of Iowa’s Youth Ballet.
