成立緣起 | Reason for Establishment

菁霖文化藝術基金會(以下簡稱本會),是2003年由長年居住美國的台灣企業家李先生出資,邀請多位舞蹈專家、文化藝術界及其他專業人士協助成立。李先生為愛女投注舞蹈的熱情所感動,經由多次返台參觀訪談,並拜會北、中、南,各舞團、舞蹈教育機構,深入了解其結構。舞蹈界對藝術貢獻之熱情,令李先生為之動容。本會起源於李先生對女兒從事舞蹈之感動,亦甚唸父母培育之恩,藉名「菁霖」深感父恩及追思母情。因此決定為祖國台灣的舞蹈界,貢獻自己的一份心力。

ChinLin Foundation for Culture and Arts was established in 2003 by Mr. Ya-Huang Lee, a Taiwanese entrepreneur based in the USA, with the intent of fostering connections between dance experts, cultural circles and other art professionals.Mr. Lee are inspired by his beloved daughter and her great love for dance. Mr. Lee has a deep understanding of the Taiwanese dance culture, having been associated through the years with many dance companies and educational institutions from all parts of Taiwan, he is visibly moved by the enthusiasm that dance contributes to the arts. The Foundation’s name itself, “ChinLin”, holds great personal significance for Mr. Lee: “Chin” is named after his mother and “Lin” his father. Together the meaning of “ChinLin” stands for “the gracious rain irrigating the flower, like parents bringing up their children.”ChinLin Foundation supports young choreographers, dancers and dance scholars, as well as those organizations that support dance and dance research. The Foundation is the only one in Taiwan solely for supporting dance.
