National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded in 1976 by Jacques d’Amboise in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage children and motivate them toward excellence.  Each year, NDI transforms the lives of over 40,000 New York City public school children and their communities through weekly classes, short-term residencies, and public performances.  Under the artistic direction of Ellen Weinstein and a staff of professional teaching artists, programs are offered to all children, transcending barriers of language, culture, and physical and cognitive challenges.  Children learn to work together and develop personal standards of excellence, a pride of achievement, and a curiosity about the world that supports their success in school and in life.  No child pays a penny for NDI’s core programs. Children who demonstrate an extraordinary commitment throughout their dance training are invited to join the organization’s most advanced troupe, the NDI Celebration Team, and perform year-round at venues that have included Symphony Space, Lincoln Center, Juilliard, City Center, the Kennedy Center, the White House and the Academy Awards.  NDI dancers have toured internationally to Geneva, Switzerland; Venice, Italy; Tel Aviv, Israel; and Shanghai, China.
