"I believe that the dancers should engage those less-used muscles by practicing street dance. So in addition to our long-term, traditional methods, rooted in Eastern body practices, we incorporated a few different elements, which enable them to take on a somewhat different body expression," he says.

For Lin, the deepest impression on him, as the company reaches its 50th year, stems from the attention and affection received from audiences all around the world, in places extending beyond theaters, as the company also performs in the rural areas.

During an excursion to the countryside, Lin encountered an elderly woman, who held his hands and said, "Thank you for your beautiful art". For him, that moment encapsulated the most important aspect of the past 50 years.

Lin also returned to the National Centre for the Performing Arts with the troupe, a trip he eagerly arranged to meet up with some old friends at the company.
