Dear NDI New Mexico Families and Friends,

On behalf of NDI New Mexico I would like to express our gratitude for the wonderful online experiences we’ve had this fall with thousands of students from across the state, keeping them moving, laughing, learning, and creating at home. These fall programs were made possible by our partnership with parents, and because of the generosity of our supporters in the communities we serve.

We now look to the winter with hope and renewed dedication to the health and well-being of our students and their families. To our partner schools around New Mexico, we will be offering a variety of hybrid online options. Our programs will be flexible and designed to support the social-emotional and academic goals that the schools have for this year. Learn more about bringing NDI New Mexico to your school HERE

In keeping with CDC guidance and Governor Lujan Grisham’s public orders, we have decided not to fully open our facilities at The Dance Barns and The Hiland at this time The majority of our Afterschool programs will continue to happen online through April. Classes will be offered for ages 3-18 in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Hip Hop, and Creative Movement. Register for WINTER2020 HERE All classes will be Pay What You Can to ensure that quality online dance education is affordable to all families.

We will be serving our SWAT and Celebration Teams through online rehearsals, working toward virtual and hybrid performances. The Dance Barns and The Hiland Advanced Companies will have the option of participating in our in-person socially distant programming in very small groups with strict safety protocols, combined with their online rehearsals and classes. Learn more about Advanced Teams HERE

Other exciting offerings for this winter include:

  • Online master classes with national and international guest artists
  • Video series for young children
  • Mail-home materials to support our online curriculum

We hope that you will join us online this winter! Thank you for your support.
