Introduction

Tsai Jui-yueh is a pioneer who devoted her life to the Taiwanese modern dance. Born in Tainan City in 1921, she learned the basics of dancing from Ishii Baku, the Japanese “father of modern dance”, before committing herself to introducing modern dance into Taiwan. She was revered as “ the mother of Taiwanese modern dance” because of her 500-odd productions that cover genres ranging from ballet to folk dances of all ethnicities; the productions she helped inspired include: “The Song of India” and “We Love Our Taiwan”. The historic structure of Tsai Jui-yueh Dance Research Institute was one of the tens of dormitories for Japanese colonial officials built around 1925 on Zhongshan N. Rd. and downtown Taipei; they were mostly wooden, Japanese-style duplexes. In 1953, Tsai purchased this former residence of a Japanese “Haninkan” official, with part of the house designated for choreographic rehearsals. She went on to convert it into a dance studio. In 1999, scholars insisted that Tsai’s dance studio, once destroyed in a fire and coveted by real estate developers, should be restored as a historic site in homage to Taiwanese modern dance.

    great cafe

    2018-01

    This is a cafe actually. With a very wide lawn, standing in the middle of Taipei. Very worth to spend an afternoon here. 這裡其實是一間咖啡廳。 他坐落在台北市的中央,但卻擁有非常寬闊的草坪。 非常值得花一個下午在這裡悠哉悠哉。

    中山駅付近の散策中に訪れました

    2020-01

    中山駅付近のホテルに宿泊していたのですが、周囲のデパートや商店は午前11時開店のところが多く、とりあえず、朝の散歩に出ることにしました。中山北路や中山駅線路上の遊歩道などを歩いて回る途中、午前10時に開門のこちらを見つけ立ち寄りました。建物が日本時代の公務員住宅を使った古風なもので、ダンスの練習場して使われている広い室内に入ることができたのが良かったです。周囲が芝生で落ち着いた環境なのも心が和みました。

    都市裡的優雅

    2018-04

    在高樓大廈間的一塊綠地,舞蹈社的空間有時會有小朋友在練舞或是活動的進行,在咖啡廳的戶外有一大片的綠地,很適合下午茶。

    偶然的古蹟

    2017-06

    對於地形不熟的人並不容易找到此處,所以恐怕也不適合且不值得外國觀光客前來;但是對於舞蹈或民族感情堅持愛好者,應該會覺得是個特別的地點 附設餐飲品質不是重點,要注意的是蚊子的可怕;雖然在市中心但蚊子攻擊性強的驚人
