Revival of the Taihoku High School Dance

Activity time:25~26Mar,2022
Organizer: Student Affairs

In 1928, teachers in Taihoku High School (predecessor of NTNU) collected songs and dances from the Taiwanese indigenous peoples and adapted them into the Taihoku High School Dance. It was first performed in 1933 during the school’s anniversary celebration, and later became a regular feature during NTNU’s anniversary celebrations and dormitory festivals. Today, working with only the surviving Japanese dance notations, music score, and some video recordings of the dance moves re-enacted by older alumni, the school hopes to revive the school dance from a hundred years ago as a memento of the freedom and charms of school life during the Taihoku High School period.
