Northport and East Northport sixth-graders were treated to an exciting display of culture and history on Jan. 30. The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company, a multi-cultural and interactive dance program with bright costumes and mesmerizing props, came to perform for the students.

The performances brought the audience on an explorative journey of the Chinese culture, which is one of the most ancient cultures in the world. The program included a detailed explanation of the background of each dance, informing the audience of the historical context, geography and the practice of traditional dance.

The dancers encouraged students to participate throughout the program, and selected students were invited on stage to learn how to dance with silk ribbons.
