Taewondo 태권도 &탈춤 Talchum (K-MaskDance)

탈춤 Talchum (Mask Dance)

이번에 최초로 개설 된 탈춤반을 소개합니다.조선시대에 크게 유행한 탈춤은 말 그대로 탈을 쓰고 공연자와 관객이 한 마당에서 어울려 즐기는 마당놀이로 원래는 서민들의 마음을 대변하는 놀이로 자신의 얼굴을 감추는 탈을 쓰고 서민들이 양반이나 하인등으로 분장하여 못마땅한 현실을 놀이화 한 것입니다. 지금은 민속문화의 하나로 누구나 즐기고 있습니다

Let me introduce our brand new class, Talchum , the mask dance.  Talchum are originally the dances performed by masked dancers while wearing a mask, mimicry, miming, speaking and even sometimes singing, which was popular during Chosun Dynasty. Today it is played in cultural festivals.

탈춤수업을 지도해 주실 선생님은 임재현 선생님으로, 어릴적부터 한국음악을 배워왔으며, 예술고등학교에서 한국음악 이론수업을 들어 한국음악의 기초를 다졌으며, 대학에서는 서양음악 작곡을 통하여 음악에 대한 지식의 영역을 넓혔습니다.  한국음악에 대한 끊임없는 동경으로 대학 후 하와이 대학에 진학하여한국음악과 서양음악을 접목한 음악에 대한 연구와 함께 창작활동을 펼쳤으며, 한국음악 앙상블의 무대에 오르기도 했습니다. 임재현 선생님은 우리 학생들에게 탈춤의 기본동작과 함께 탈춤을 통한 생각의 표현등을 가르쳐 주십니다. 학생들은 수업시간에 자기가 사용할 탈도 직접 만들고, 탈춤을 출때 사용하는 전통음악도 접하게 되어 한국문화를 한꺼번에 다량으로 체험할 수 있는 값있는 경험을 갖게 될 것입니다.

Lim, Jae-Huyn is the instructor of the Talchum class. Ms. Lim has learned Korean traditional music since she was a little girl and deepened her knowledge as she was attending the specialized Music and Arts High school. She studied western music composition in a college, but couldn’t forget the beauty of Korean Traditional music. She decided to study further. In Hawaii University she continued to study music focused on combination of the western music with Korean Transitional music.  Ms. Lim will teach our students the basic Talchum elements and help our students express their thoughts and feelings through the mask dance, Talchum. Students will be making their own mask during the class and exposed to the Korean traditional music, which will be accompanied when dance.  This will benefit the students in multiple ways.

탈춤수업은 가을학기에는 주황2반, 노랑1반, 노랑2반, 초록반이 참가하고, 봄학기에는 주황1반, 연두반, 파랑반, 자주&보라반이 참가하게 됩니다.

I would like to let you know that we require the Taekwondo uniform (can be purchased in Amazon.com) for the student who selects the Taekwondo class as their choice and the participating students will be taking the promotion test at the end of semester. This promotion degree validates the student in all other Taekwondo institution. The students who have been taking the Taekwondo class will bring their belt in the first class so that the level is confirmed by Master Ahn. Those who don’t have the belt will be tested during the first class and guided what color of the belt the student needs to get. The belt is available at school for $10.
