Dear NDI New Mexico families and friends,
For the safety and health of our communities, we are canceling all remaining programs and performances through May. While it is heartbreaking to take this step because we miss our students so much already, we are proud to be a part of our state taking strong measures for the protection of our children and families, and we hope you are all home and healthy.
To keep young people throughout our communities active, happy, and connected, we have begun posting videos on our NDI New Mexico YouTube channel and will be adding more content often. Please subscribe to the channel to see the latest videos, which will be for children of all ages, with a variety of dance styles and levels taught by our dedicated instructors from their own living rooms! We hope these will be sources of physical activity as well as social and emotional wellbeing for children, teens, and their families.
We are also offering some live classes through Zoom for our advanced teams and afterschool families, and we will post future live-streaming classes that will be available to the public! Also, follow us on Instagram, and Facebook. We would love to connect with our students and families through social media, and we’d love to videos of you all dancing at home!
NDI New Mexico offices and facilities are closed but all full-time staff are working and are available to you to answer your questions. We hope that our alternative online programs will be a resource to you and complimentary to our partners in the schools in creating remote learning opportunities for children across the state.
