For 25 years, the International Festival of Dance has been showcasing dance academies, colleges, troupes and other dance organizations from all over the world. Organized, in part, by some of Taiwan’s leading dance schools and the Department of Culture, the festival brings some of the best dancers and choreographies to Taipei in order to unite the dance scene and promote fine arts in Taipei.
