The world renown dance company, Cloud Gate, has just opened
its 11th dance studio and its very first coffee shop on Guan
Qian Rd., near one of the busiest places in Taipei, the Taipei
train station. This cafe; is designed to look like a theater,
with a group of seats located on the right side and a stage
near the bar. There is also an outdoor area from which customers
can see Yangmingshan or look down below at the busy streets
surrounding the train station. Walking down a hall, which
is a gallery of photos showing past performances of Cloud
Gate, enter the dance studio area. Rhythm classes are offered
to allow people to understand their unique body movements.
These classes are not for professionals, but for the everyday
person looking for a new artistic experience.
