Below and to the left you will find photos of our trip to Taiwan from June 22 to July 6, 2007. Fourteen dancers and four faculty and staff were part of the tour. We did one performance in Miami with students from the Tsoying Senior High School in Kaohsiung Taiwan and then two performances in Kaohsiung and a lecture demonstration at a Junior High School. We visited several school, museums, and saw aboriginal dancers and the Cloud Gate Dance Company. We visited the country side and the big cities. Everyone had an wonderful educational experience.
