About NDI New Mexico

NDI 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. Over the last 25 years, NDI New Mexico has grown from serving 100 children in one school to reaching almost 10,000 children annually through in-school, after-school, summer, and advanced training classes in communities across the state.
