ABSTRACT

The fields of dance and dance education in Taiwan had been shaped and reshaped by internal and external cultural factors during Japanese colonization (1895-1945). The changes in political, cultural and social practices affected people’s aesthetic dispositions towards dance, so the value and function of dance varied accordingly. This research applied five key concepts of Pierre Bourdieu’s analytical framework, field, agent, habitus, cultural capital, and symbolic violence, to analyses the major change of dance in this historical stage. Through this study, foreign influence on the development of dance in Taiwan from Japan and Korea during Japanese colonization can be understood.
