The 50th NYC Marathon is only 3 weeks away and our Team Jacques runners have been training for weeks! We couldn't be more thrilled to have NDI mom Rebecca Wessler running for us and helping to bring NDI to more children. Go Rebecca and Go Team Jacques! #TeamJacques #NYCMarathon

We were thrilled to return to NJPAC last week to perform in a memorial celebration for our beloved board member Judy Weston. Judy was extraordinary, generous and infinitely kind, and it was an honor to pay tribute with live music and in-person dancing!

Honoring Indigineous people on this day gives us an opportunity to reflect on history that has been erased, rewritten and appropriated--and reconsider how we introduce and discuss this history with the children we serve.

We acknowledge the Lenape people, the original stewards of the land on which the NDI Center is built. We offer respect to their ancestors, and to the Black ancestors who shaped Harlem as we know it today. Our histories are intertwined. We travel along their pathways.

On this day, we take a moment to commit to educating ourselves about that history, and to learning about the culture, arts and lives of current-day Lenape people on whose unceded land our NDI Center now sits. #IndigenousPeoplesDay #NationalDanceInstitute

Eliana is a true testament to the transformative power of dance and NDI's core belief that all children should have access to Arts Education whether in the classroom, studio, or zoom room!
