Program Coordinator, NDI Collaborative for Teaching & Learning

About NDI

Mission and History

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 model 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 toward excellence in all aspects of their lives. Since our inception, more than two million children have been impacted through engagement in immersive, participatory dance programs led by NDI’s professional teaching artists.

NDI Collaborative for Teaching & Learning

The NDI Collaborative for Teaching and Learning is a professional development program for teaching artists, dance educators, musicians, and organizations worldwide.  NDI Collaborative trainings are based on National Dance Institute’s effective and widely-acclaimed teaching techniques developed by Founder Jacques d’Amboise and codified under the artistic direction of Ellen Weinstein.
