Through NDI's distinctive dance programs, children develop discipline, a standard of excellence, and a belief in themselves that carries over into all aspects of their lives.
NDI's programs are designed for all children, including those with special needs. Our School Partnerships include Full Year Programs and short-term Residencies. NDI classes are taught during the school day to place the arts on an equal standing with other academic subjects. Classes are led by three professional teaching artists: a master teacher-choreographer, an assistant teacher, and a musician. We also offer Professional Development Workshops for classroom teachers.
Through NDI's Advanced Programs, exceptionally motivated children receive a scholarship to continue their NDI experience by participating in after school, Saturday, and / or summer sessions. Children may continue advanced studies up to age 15, dancing in numerous public performances. Upon graduation, students are invited to join our Alumni Association.
Teaching Artist Training Workshops are offered on a regular basis as an introduction to the NDI methodology.
