She later graduated summa cum laude from The Boston Conservatory, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Contemporary Dance Performance on The Boston Conservatory and Anne Cuervo-Philip Pionelli scholarships.
She was a Company Artist of Frontier Danceland from 2018 to 2022. She has also worked professionally in the United States and Spain, in companies including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago 2, Danza Organica and Present-Day Dance Theatre, among others. She has originated featured roles in works by Shahar Binyamini, Edouard Hue, Sita Ostheimer, Marioenrico D’Angelo, Chiew Peishan, Low Mei Yoke, Peter Chu, Alice Klock, Marco Goecke, Andrea Miller, Adam Hougland, Loni Landon, Dwight Rhoden and Kuik Swee Boon. She has also performed excerpts of repertory works by Crystal Pite, Bryan Arias, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon, and Ohad Naharin. She strives to be honest, curious and courageous, as an artist and impact this world meaningfully through the powerful language of dance.
YueRu created a site-specific, inter-disciplinary work, Endless Fragments of Time, a filmic work, Take Pause, and co-choreographed Elemental Beings as part of Dancers’ Locker 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. Take Pause made the official selections of Fifth Wall Fest 2020, Bogotá Experimental Film Festival 2021 and InShadow - Lisbon Screendance Festival 2021. As a choreographer, she is interested in explorations of somatic and socio-cultural practices, particularly around themes of embodiment, memory and language.
A passionate and nurturing teacher, Yue Ru has also taught Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz and Lyrical Dance at various schools and institutions, and given workshops on conditioning for injury prevention, improvisation and company repertoire. She hopes to inspire joy and love for dance in her students, building the necessary technical skills while cultivating an open-minded space for artistic exploration and expression. She believes in nurturing students not only to be capable dancers, but also to be individuals who are respectful, tenacious and empathetic to the world around them.
