National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise in the belief that the arts, and dance in particular, have a unique power to engage children and motivate them toward excellence. Through our award-winning multidisciplinary programs, we strive to reach every child, transcending barriers of language, culture, and physical and cognitive challenges. In the process, our professional teaching artists foster in students a love of the arts and curiosity about the world, and help our young dancers learn to work together, develop personal standards of excellence and cultivate a confidence in themselves that supports their success in school and in life. Since its founding in 1976, NDI has impacted the lives of over 2 million children.
