5 DANCE STUDIOS TO GO TO WHEN YOU’RE IN TAIPEI

by Little Kay-Cee

Week 3, January

Lately, many of us have been going abroad to meet dancers overseas, attend events and take classes. Especially for the younger dancers, it’s not that there are not already enough talented dancers/teachers in Singapore, but they are curious to learn more and to experience the differences in the dance culture elsewhere.

Dance Meets will be sharing a little about the different dance studios you can visit in different cities/countries.

*DISCLAIMER* There are many studios around so we will just be introducing some which are probably more accessible, with many instructors that you might be interested in, or with a certain specialty, etc.

 

1 Dance Soul

    Hi ! I’m a french student who come in Taipei for a year from September 2017, and I would like to keep training hip hop in classes in Taipei. But, I don’t speak Chinese, so do you recommande one studio more than another on those five ?
    I don’t expect entire english speaking classes, but at least if you know a teacher who can translate sometimes in english, it will be really cool.

    Thanks a lot !

      Hi there! Thank you for your enquiry. The studios which were posted are those that I know have great Teachers who have so much to offer as they are experienced both in Taipei and abroad. As many of the Teachers have been travelling and teaching overseas as well, I’m sure that they are able to converse in basic english. I’ve been to Taipei frequently and the teachers are very friendly and helpful. Perhaps you can speak to them before the class starts and let them know where you are from. (: Have a good year of exploration in Taiwan!
