A Korean Traditional Dance Experience at the Daejeon Summer Festival 2012

Posted by on Aug 28, 2012 in Destinations, Featured, Korea | 2 comments

I didn’t have to travel far for this one since I live on the same street as the Daejeon Arts Center. Apparently, this free festival is an annual event in Daejeon. Performances are held in an outdoor amphitheatre, and range from traditional to modern, and are free. The first night was a real treat for me…Korean Traditional Dance. Honestly, I don’t know a whole lot about Korean dance. I simply love the costumes and the “flow” of the dancers. I took quite a few photos, but also a video which I’ll share here today. While I prefer taking photos, sometimes a video is just…well better.

I did do a bit of research, and discovered that this is probably a court dance. Court dances are characterized by slow, elegant movements, and the dancing is quite restrained. (Korea4Expats)

Enjoy the video…

Have you ever been to a traditional Korean dance performance?

  1. You are meeting your self-imposed challenge well! It has helped to give myself deadlines and adhere to them. What a beautiful post – and how nice to live just down the street! How’s the typhoon – hitting or history?

  2. Hi Jackie, Yes, I love living close to the Culture centre. There is always a lot going on. the typhoon is history. We had a lot of wind in Daejeon, and a bit of rain, but nothing too major. The coastal areas were hit much harder.
