Year of the Rooster: Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company

A delight for the entire family, the Year of the Rooster combines the elegance of traditional Asian art and the beauty of American modern dance with thrilling choreography, exotic music and dazzling acrobats.

Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company presents an award-winning event that brings audiences close to one of the world’s most celebrated festivals, China’s Spring Festival. The Year of the Rooster features the exciting sights of dancing lions and dragons, the lilting sound of Chinese pipa and erhu, and the vibrant, gold and red costumes and props.
