Basic steps to Korean dance consist of breathing from the diaphragm and movements which extend from the body as the central core. All parts of the body work as a unit with emphasis on the moving curve without high articulation. There is a relaxed quality to the motions with the hands and feet, such as arm raises and hand gestures; heel walking; turning on the heels; raising the body from a bent knee position in a soft and light manner; and jumping from a squat position. The integral force is in the breathing while the centre weight is in the upper chest. More importantly, Korean dance places a strong emphasis on mood – reaching a state of ecstasy and joy – rather than on plot or story line.

The School of Korean Dance Studies Society of Canada offers an intensive program of classes in traditional dance and drum taught by an outstanding, creative faculty of experienced teachers, including Mi Young Kim (Artistic Director, Choreographer). These programs are designed for students with a background in dance or drum, although new members are always welcome to join the general and summer intensive classes and audition for professional training.
