Performing Arts

In Taiwan, performing arts begin early. Students as young as 3 – 4 years old are trained to act in skits for graduation events for their parent. I have been a part of this first hand, and know how frustrating it is to get a room full of 5 year olds to behave, let alone rehearse. Some Taiwanese co-teachers of mine were such bitches to the kids too, yelling and even hitting the kids to keep them in line.

There are lots of events every year where Taiwanese student of all ages must get on stage and do some kind of routine. Even when they are more grown up, you can still see them at colleges practicing routines in their spare time.

Here is a video of what can happen when given spare time and a desire to make that “special” routine.
