Dancer, Company member since 2009
Xuexin (Nico) Li’s range and adaptability stems from her global exposure as an acclaimed artistic youth performing throughout China, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the U.S., where she eventually earned her BFA from the Conservatory of Dance, SUNY Purchase College in 2009. As a collaborator, she brings her intellect and experience whole-heartedly into the creative process, immersing herself in dance, improvisation and physical theater. Currently Nico is a senior company member of SYREN Modern Dance (2009- ) and Chris Masters Dance (2013- ), as well as a frequent guest artist of Maurice Fraga’s Ekilibre Dance Co., Yin Mei Dance and Dance China NY, through the NY Chinese Cultural Center. Recent teaching credits include Beijing Meng Jing Hui Experimental theater, Grosse Pointe Dance Center, University of Utah Department of Modern Dance and Brigham Young University. Supplemental to her research of the body, she is also a certified GYROTONIC® trainer and invests in a daily meditation practice. Nico is incredibly grateful for being part of SYREN for the past 9 years.
