Choreographer Nai-Ni Chen and her dancers fuse the dynamic freedom of American modern dance with the grace and splendor of Asian art. Their spectacular productions take audiences beyond cultural boundaries, to a place where tradition meets innovation and freedom arise from discipline. The company has received more than 15 awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, and numerous Citations of Excellence from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.

Chen and company specialize in “a remarkably smooth blend of the new and the old, as well as a confident, intensely personal approach to nature,” says The New York Times, which has described Chen’s dancers as “endlessly proliferating forces of cosmic energy.”
“With their intriguing choreography of traditional and modern Chinese dance, elaborate costuming, and a variety of music, this company succeeds in delighting persons of all ages,” says BroadwayWorld.com.

Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance.
