Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company


Nai-Ni Chen has been making dances that bridge the richness of Asian art and the dynamic spirit of American dance for over thirty years.  Chen’s unique choreographic styles reflect the grace and splendor of the Chinese cultural traditions she studied in Taiwan, and the dynamic spirit of modern and contemporary dance she acquired in New York.  In addition to domestic touring, her company has also performed at international festivals in Mexico, Canada, Guatemala, Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, South Korea and China. Nai-Ni Chen has received multiple Choreographer’s Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and from New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Her work has also been commissioned by the Joyce Theater Foundation, the Lincoln Center Institute, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Dancing in the Streets, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and New Jersey Performing Art Center.
