Nancy Napier, international business professor and executive director of the Centre for Creativity and Innovation at Boise State University, dropped in on the Trey McIntyre Project’s performance in Hanoi last night. The company is in the second week of its DanceMotion USA tour of Asia.
Napier ran Boise State’s involvement in an $8.5 million capacity building project at the National Economics University in Hanoi for nine years. She happened to be in Hanoi this week and was able to get tickets to TMP’s sold out performance for herself and a few BSU alumni who live in Hanoi.
She also heads a think tank at Boise State called “The Gang” that includes TMP’s executive director and dancer John Michael Schert (the tall blonde on the left), Bronco football coach Chris Peterson and others who focus on best creative practices.
“TMP was a smash last evening,” Napier says. “Maybe we even saw a little bit of world peace in the process!”
