Jersey Arts TV: Celebrating the Lunar New Year with Nai-Ni Chen at NJPAC

New Year, New Fortunes! Once again the lunar New Year is upon us, with those celebrating ushering out the old year and bringing forth a year of prosperity and good fortune.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company honors this tradition annually at the NJPAC with a cross-cultural, immersive dance performance.

Nai-Ni Chen promotes their vision that the immigrant’s journey of crossing cultures and adapting to the new home provides endless inspiration and opportunities for creative expressions that can enrich the human experience.

Jersey Arts speaks to Executive Director, Andy Chiang, and members of the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company about "The Year of the Green Wood Dragon."

Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company performs at NJPAC in Newark, NJ | February 10-11, 2024 at 2:00pm. Click here for tickets.
