The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company conducted a special performance for students at New Jersey City University on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 at 10:30am at NJCU's Margret Williams Theatre in Jersey City as part of a company residency at the A. Harry Moore Laboratory School. Though largely an A. Harry Moore student audience, the public was also invited to see the performance in which NJCU students and Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company members participated.

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company began working with A. Harry Moore Laboratory School in February, 2016 as part of their ongoing residency at New Jersey City University. Established in 1931 as a special education school, the A. Harry Moore School is one of the oldest schools dedicated to special education in the state. In March of 2016, after extensive meetings with the principal and teachers about the students' abilities, Nai-Ni Chen designed a curriculum for a select group of students. The curriculum, inspired by observing the students and teachers, continues to evolve as it is implemented by the company's teaching artists who work with teachers and therapists at the school. Nai-Ni's approach is to ask the students to use images of natural phenomenon to guide their body and to create their own movement. In the first three weeks, the classes have already produced positive reactions from students.
