<p><font face="Arial">By Vickie Lo<br /> Assistant Coordinator</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Shaanxi Normal University (SNU) students tried to impress their counterparts at National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU) by their traditional Shaanxi dance and songs during the &ldquo;Night of Shaanxi&rdquo; show at the auditorium tonight.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">These 19 Shaanxi students&rsquo; show was echoed but none of them is arts or music related majors.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">Xu Wu (許武), a junior from SNU&rsquo;s College of Chinese Literature, said that they spent more than a month for the preparation of the show, which was designed to bounding with NTNU counterparts.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;Although we are not professional singers or dancers, we hope our show would have satisfied you tonight,&rdquo; Xu said.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">To the audiences&rsquo; astonishment, Shaanxi students, in addition to their performances of traditional Shaanxi singing and dancing, they also sang Taiwanese pop songs.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">&quot;Thanks to satellites,&rdquo; said Wang Xiang (王翔), a senior from SNU&rsquo;s College of News and Media.&nbsp; &ldquo;We also watch a lot of Taiwanese TV back at home through satellites so many hotshots in Taiwanese entertainment business are not strangers to us, such as Jay Chou (周杰倫) and Aska Yang (楊宗緯).&rdquo;</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">In return, a group of NTNU students presented their street dancing while National Experimental Chorus sang four songs in four different formats &ndash; Shaanxi, Taiwanese, Hakka and Taiwanese indigenous &ndash; during the show.&nbsp; The chorus was invited to the show because NTNU President Gou Yih-shun (郭義雄) is also leading the group.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial">The SNU delegates, led by SNU Vice President Zhang Jianxiang (張建祥), arrived in Taiwan on April 25.&nbsp; Upon their arrivals, these SNU students have visited Taipei 101, Maokong Gondola and will visit Sun Moon Lake and Alishan.&nbsp; They will leave Taiwan on May 3.</font></p> <p><font face="Arial"><br /> </font>&nbsp;</p>
