National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded in 1976 by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage all children—regardless of background, ability, or socioeconomic status—and motivate them toward excellence. Since its founding, NDI has impacted the lives of over two million children.

National Dance Institute stands as a model of how the arts can transcend barriers of language, culture, and socio-economics. For over 40 years, we have been bringing together children from all corners of NYC and building an environment of mutual #respect, #understanding, and #friendship that values both our similarities and our differences.

This holiday season, please support #NDI and join with us to promote #equity, #inclusion, and #harmony through the joyful pathways of dance and music.
