National Dance Institute

National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded in 1976 by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise and leads the field of arts education with a program that has been studied and replicated worldwide. At the root of NDI’s methodology is the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage children of diverse backgrounds, abilities, and socio-economic positions, and motivate them towards excellence in all aspects of their lives. NDI’s goal is to support the social and emotional development of children through active, participatory arts experiences. Since our founding, NDI has impacted the lives of more than two million children.

Through partnerships with schools, NDI teaching artists and musicians bring the transformative power of the arts into classrooms reaching thousands of children every year, at no cost to the students. NDI also offers free participatory classes to students online through our ndiLIVE! platform, where children can tune in to a variety of high-energy dance and music classes for all ability levels from their homes each week.
NDI is based in Harlem, NY where our studios are used for performances, public classes for children, and programs for children with disabilities. Our classes are taught using the NDI Method, an approach we share through the NDI Collaborative for Teaching & Learning, a professional development program for teaching artists, dance educators, musicians, and organizations worldwide.

There are currently 12 Associates of National Dance Institute (ANDI) thriving in the United States that use the NDI Method to serve over 30,000 children every year. Internationally, NDI has developed collaborations with arts and education organizations in both Shanghai, China and in Beirut, Lebanon through training in the NDI methodology.
