Nice thread, would have made one at season start if she didn't have one yet, luckily I didn't have to.

A super kind Nini fan has provided me with more links and lists of Nini's programs across the years. I will update her page over the next few days!
Apparently Nini choreographed some of her old programs, before she started working with Benoit Richaud! I did not know that before!
For example her gala from 2015 CoC was choreographed by Nini when she was 8!

I was wondering - because names are so important to Chinese - what does the nickname 'Nini' mean?
