Millstone Examiner - February 10, 2010

MILLSTONE — Just in time for the Chinese New Year, the Millstone Township Performing Arts Center (MPAC) will present “Dragon’s Tale.”

“Dragon’s Tale” consists of a series of dances inspired by Chinese festivals and rituals. In addition to traditional dance steps, the program at 3 p.m. on Feb. 28 features martial arts, acrobatics and audience participation. The show will be performed by the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company.

A New Jersey resident, Nai-Ni Chen was one of the most renowned Chinese classical dancers in the Republic of China. Chen founded her own company in 1988. Since then, she has created a wide-ranging repertory that includes dances that originated thousands of years ago and abstract, modern creations.

Tickets for “Dragon’s Tale” cost $20 for adults and $15 for seniors and for children under 12.

MPAC will continue its season lineup with a presentation of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” at 8 p.m. on March 13. Tickets cost $45 for orchestra seats and $40 for all other reserved seats. Seniors get $5 off the ticket price for this performance.
