NDI New Mexico’s Virtual Gala, Brand New Day!
Brand New Day is a livestreaming program celebrating hope and joy and featuring hundreds of NDI children from around the state dancing to original choreography. Enjoy inspiring testimonials and learn how we’ve delivered on our mission, serving nearly 9,000 students.
NDI New Mexico is founded with the knowledge that the arts have a unique power to engage and motivate children. ANDI New Mexico’s kinesthetic teaching methodology was developed by former NYC Ballet dancer and MacArthur Fellowship recipient, Jacques d’Amboise, who founded NDI in New York City in 1976. In 1994, Catherine Oppenheimer, formerly of NYC Ballet and Twyla Tharp Dance Company, co-founded NDI New Mexico in Santa Fe. Since that time, NDI New Mexico has grown from serving 100 children in one school to reaching almost 8,900 children annually through virtual In-School and Afterschool programs, Summer and Advanced training classes in communities across the state.
