KW Taiwanese & The Gorgeous Black Cat Dance Group

The Gorgeous Black Cat Dance Group was formed in 2008 by members of the Toronto Chapter of North American Taiwanese Women’s Association.

The name “BLACK CAT” comes from a widely used slang in the Taiwanese language. In Taiwan, a gorgeous and attractive woman is often given the nick name “black cat” as a compliment for her beauty and charm.

The members of the dance group are all amateur dancers. They focus on learning Taiwanese folk dances, and promoting lifelong learning and exercise through dancing.

These ladies proudly and actively participate in cultural events like this to promote, share, and celebrate Taiwanese culture with the public."
