Belly dance is primarily a torso-driven dance, with an emphasis on articulations of the hips. Unlike many Western dance forms, the focus of the dance is on relaxed, natural isolations of the torso muscles, rather than on movements of the limbs through space. Although some of these isolations appear superficially similar to the isolations used in jazz ballet, they are often driven differently and have a different feeling or emphasis, which is usually more subtle and contained Class

Name of Institue or School: Fo Guang University 佛光大學
Location: Yilan County 宜蘭縣
District: Jiaushi Shiang
＊The University is the first in Taiwan to fully comply with Environmental Impact Assessment standards while completing the development of a mountain slope campus. Begun in 1996, the project involved major changes to the slope, but every effort was made to keep the impact on the natural environment to a minimum during the construction process. Eagles, monkeys, bamboo partridges, raccoons and other fauna can still be spotted on campus right now, especially the nationally protected blue magpie; and the stream has no lack of fish, shrimp and crab. The results of efforts at the time are already evident.
Fo Guang University is the Ilan area’s first institution of higher learning, located in Linmei Village, Chiaohsi Township, Ilan County. A gradualist approach was adopted in developing the 56.6-hectare campus as part of a plan for the overall area. The Ministry of Education granted approval on July 20, 2000, and the school formally opened that September. The Schools of Humanities and Sociology were the first to be founded during the initial phase of establishment. Fo Guang will gradually be developed into a fully rounded university later on.
The view from the campus differs according to the season. In spring and autumn seasonal winds leave the mountain enshrouded by a light cloudy mist, while the sky is clear in summer and one can see Turtle Island and the Pacific Ocean, or even spot the spouts of whales with the aid of binoculars. Since the campus is located at an optimal height above the Ilan plain, the view at night is even more stunning, making it the best holiday leisure spot of choice for Ilan area residents.
Solar and wind power generating equipment is located next to the outdoor performance arena. Both are still being tested for how much electricity they can supply in order to assess whether they can provide a portion of the electricity for lighting the facility. These two generating sources now provide spectacular lighting at night, adding considerably to the luster of the campus.
＊In anticipating increased competition following Taiwan's accession into the World Trade Organization and globalization, our Founders strongly believe that international dimension of higher education is extremely crucial for future generations. Thus, Asia University is established with the vision to be the Leading International University in Taiwan.
＊Gateway to the International Programs
The center for International Academic Exchange plays a role as “a window on the world”. We collaborate with a range of world-class partner institutions, offering a range of academic exchanges and activities. We are proud of our comprehensive international involvements.
- Mater Programs Delivered in English, We offer Master Programs delivered in English for all international students. There are programs in Healthcare Administration, programs in Computer Science & Information Engineering, programs in Business Administration, and programs in Creative Design.

For the past 36 years, the Master promoted the philosophy of respecting life and upholding wisdom through the foundation’s activities of charity, medical care, education, and culture.
Today Tzu Chi has branches in over thirty nations and is internationally known for its dedication to helping the needy. Master Cheng Yen also established the first university specializing in medical science and humanities in eastern Taiwan. The Tzu Chi College of Medicine opened its doors to students on October 16, 1994. In August 1998, the college was renamed the Tzu Chi College Medicine and Humanities. In 2000, the school was given its current name of Tzu Chi University. That same year, the elementary and secondary school affiliated with Tzu Chi University began enrolling first year students.
Tzu Chi University provides students with an environment full of kindness, compassion, joy, and unselfish giving—the four components of its mission. Students learn and study according to their interests on a safe and beautiful campus.
By harboring Great Love, the school hopes that students will enjoy life without much suffering during their stay and after graduation. Tzu Chi University prepares students to develop diverse perspectives and also encourages them to achieve their goals and find meaning in life.
Tzu Chi University provides several scholarship opportunities including the Dean’s List Scholarship and Service Scholarship. Students can apply for a Service Scholarship to waive their tuition fees and cover living costs beginning from their sophomore year. After graduating, they are expected to serve at a designated location such as Hualien Tzu Chi Hospital or other Tzu Chi affiliates. Students who make it on the Dean’s list can receive a scholarship of twenty thousand NT dollars per semester. In addition to these two scholarships, the university also offers other scholarships to students with financial difficulties. However, most of these scholarships are not available to international students.

Students can take courses from any of these schools. Furthermore, The University of California at Berkeley, Bukkyo University in Japan, British Columbia University in Canada, University of Indonesia, University of Hong Kong, University Sains Malysia and Mahidol University in Thailand are sisters to Tzu Chi University.
There are also a students exchange program with Colorado College in the United States, Bukkyo University in Japan and an academic exchange program with Beijing University in China. Moreover, distant learning programs exist at Tzu Chi offices worldwide.

＊As an institution of higher learning in the process of transforming itself from a junior college to a university, Wenzao would not have been able to uphold its reputation as the leading college of foreign languages in Taiwan had it not been for our dedicated instructors, skilled administrative staff, and brilliant students. For forty years, Wenzao has dedicated itself to forming students into healthy and loving individuals with a sense of mission and great concern for international society.
In the future, Wenzao will continue to provide high-quality education by refining expertise through years of experience in foreign language teaching, by nurturing our new departments, and by promoting cooperation and exchange programs with other institutions of learning, the government, and industry, both at home and abroad.
Only a step away from delivering on promise of turning Wenzao into a multicultural university alive with students with professional knowledge, humanistic cultivation, well-formed personalities, a global outlook, a sense of empathy, and zest for serving others.That in the near future Wenzao will stand among the most outstanding language colleges not only in Taiwan but in the entire Asian region.

In 1981, we merged with the Provincial Taipei Vocational School of Medicine, (founded in 1947), and became the National Taipei College of Nursing.
Our status was upgraded to full-fledged college status in 1994, and we expanded by opening new departments, such as the Health Care Management Department and the Infant & Child Care Department. In 1999, we established our postgraduate programs with the Nursing Department and the Health Care Management Department. Later postgraduate program expansions resulted in the opening of the following departments: Long-Term Care, Nurse-Midwifery, Health Allied Education and Speech & Hearing Disorders & Sciences.
We pioneered the nursing care technical education system in Taiwan and this achievement became a chapter of Taiwan’s nursing care technical education development history.
