Nai-Ni Chen returns to Peridance for a one week of workshop on her unique technique and repertory followed by an audition for upcoming season.

The Kinetic Spiral technique centers around the exploration of a wide range of physically challenging, intricate movement ideas that combines the grace, sensibility, delicacy, and flow of motion driven by the proper use of the breath, building a foundation to support the limitless spiral energy that supports the powerful athletic movements inspired by the common ground found in Chinese martial art, calligraphy, graffiti and contemporary dance.
