Flames burning in the dark fly about with arms on the field, leaving traces splendid and brilliant to our eyes. A total of 301 clubs participated in the 2021 National Evaluation of Clubs, and the Fire Dance Art Club from NCU was honorably awarded the “Best Club Feature Award.”  

Club Leader Tang Wan-Shun said that behind the splendid performance was a great amount of hard work. In order to participate in this evaluation, the cadre members of the club dropped their personal affairs, carried the tools required for the fire dance, and travel a long way to Yunlin for shooting a video clip for the evaluation. They rearranged the order of moves in their dances, adopted new elements, and produced a new performance. They encountered many challenges in the processes of rehearsals, choosing venues for practice, and scheduling. Eventually, they completed the filming after three days of incessant endeavor.

Although fire seems dangerous and intimidating, it is a sacred and awesome existence to Tang. Fire is actually pretty safe as long as a fire artist takes all the necessary protective measures. He pointed out that only when you come into contact with fire in person can you realize its safety and beauty. Facing the challenge of the pandemic that has made it difficult to pass on the experience and skills of old club members to new ones, he encouraged junior members that a fire artist can express the splendor of life through the fire dance as long as the artist handles safety with due care.
