GRACE by Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, Freespace Dance, and LaneCo Arts will be presented at White Eagle Hall - Jersey City Theater Center, 337 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, NJ, 07302 on Sunday, January 21 at 2pm.

GRACE is an afternoon of dance that celebrates femininity by three women choreographers. The show features Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, one of the few professional Asian American touring dance companies led by a woman, Nai-Ni Chen, in the United States; her pieces draw inspiration from Taiwan, Chinese Kuaiban music, and the ancient Chinese cycles of creation and destruction. Freespace Dance, headed by Donna Scro Samori, will present excerpts from their evening length work of "A Women's Movement," a piece about the essence of femininity, the strength of being a woman in today's world, and the universal connection of women throughout. Finally, LaneCo Arts, led by Lane Gifford, will offer their unique blend of dance, theater, and visual arts as they perform. Their work, "And Now There are None" explores the significance of The Constitution of the United States in our complex current environment and then translates that to a broader global landscape in this dance theater work.
