Monday – Friday, 9 am – 3 pm

National Dance Institute (NDI), founded by Jacques d’Amboise, brings its award-winning dance program to the Catskill Mountain Region, with a two-week residency for children in Grades 3 through 8. Under the Artistic Direction of NDI choreographer Dufftin Garcia, the children will participate in high energy dance classes and choreography workshops, culminating in a performance on stage at the Orpheum.

Colorful banners created over the many years of our collaboration will provide a backdrop for the performance. This is a high energy event that draws large crowds every year!

This year, National Dance Institute honors the groundbreaking poet, activist, and scholar Dr. Maya Angelou.

“In diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”

—Maya Angelou

National Dance Institute is thrilled to return to the CMF after a three-year hiatus to present this in-person workshop.
