Tsai Jui-yueh Dance Research Institute 蔡瑞月舞蹈研究社

Anchor point
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


    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。

    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
