ANDI: Associates of National Dance Institute

NDI has successfully seeded programs both nationally and abroad, ranging from workshops to year-round in-depth curriculum programs, all based upon NDI's unique teaching techniques. Many of these programs have become members of ANDI: Associates of National Dance Institute.

ANDI, inspired by the work of Jacques d’Amboise, strengthens associate organizations by providing a forum to share best practices, maintain standards of excellence, and promote the growth of community arts education programs for children.
