Jersey City resident and Nimbus Dance Works dancer Peiju Chien-Pott recently performed with the Martha Graham Dance Company. Chien-Pott starred in two world premiers with the Graham company this season. Here’s what Dance Magazine had to say:

A knock-out performer, Chien-Pott starred in both world premieres this season. She’s great in the fluid, whipping-around choreography of Andonis Foniadakis in Echo and absolutely electric as the twitchy, animal-like, crazed-goddess soloist in Nacho Duato’s Depak Ine. She has that rare filament-like quality that I haven’t seen since Little Yuriko. 

If you missed PeiJu in New York – come see her with Nimbus this spring at their Jersey City Spring Season: May 15-17 at Grace Church Van Vorst!

In related news, Nimbus will renovate a new facility for the company and school in Downtown Jersey City. The new facility marks an important development for Nimbus and for the arts in Jersey City as Nimbus Dance Works emerges as one of the state’s most well-respected dance companies. The sprung floor at our new dance studio is under construction thanks to Paul and Eric SILVERMAN! Read more about it and the GoFund It campaign HERE.
