An afternoon of kids dancing for kids! Popular NDI repertory is paired with selections from their 2016 Event of the Year, Words with Wings, featuring over 200 dancers, and choreography and music inspired by poets including Langston Hughes, Aja Monet, X.J. Kennedy, and Walt Whitman.

Founded by ballet star Jacques d'Amboise, National Dance Institute (NDI), has transformed the lives of more than 2 million children through award-winning arts and learning programs, and through their spectacular and colorful public performances for over 40 years. The Celebration Team dancers are kids ages 9 to 15, drawn from schools throughout the NYC metro area.

“You can’t really go wrong with kids dancing. But the students of the Celebration Team transcend cuteness. They are remarkably musical, with rock-solid rhythm.” –The New York Times
