    Winning critical acclaim worldwide, Nai-Ni Chen has received Choreographer’s Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the 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, and the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation. She has taught master classes at colleges and universities throughout the United States and at dance festivals in Russia, Poland, Taiwan and China. Besides creating dances for her own Company (Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company), she has choreographed the opera Turandot for both the Westfield Symphony’s production at the PNG Center and the Boheme Opera Company’s production at the War Memorial Hall in Trenton, NJ. As a guest choreographer, she created “The Unconquered Warrior” for the Dancing Wheels Company of Cleveland, OH and was also invited as one of the choreographers for Ballet Met’s 30X30 project in Columbus, OH. In 2010, she choreographed a new ballet, “The Three Riddles of Turandot,” for New Jersey Ballet. In New York, she has taught at Mary Anthony Dance Studio, Peridance and New York University, where she received her MA in Dance and Dance Education. She has been a principal affiliate artist of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center since its inception. On television, Ms. Chen is an often-featured artist on PBS/NJN’s “State of the Arts.”
