Who, What and Why We Are

The New Hampshire Dance Institute (NHDI) is a non-profit organization that introduces children in kindergarten through 8th grade to the joy of choreographed dance. It is our honor and privilege to help them discover their potential by motivating them to:

  • Believe in themselves.
  • Value artistic expression.
  • Develop a personal standard of excellence.

NHDI’s teaching artists are professional dancers and choreographers who teach high-energy, exciting, physically and mentally demanding classes that instill confidence, pride, and teamwork.

Through NHDI, children learn that discipline, hard work, commitment, and concentration can lead to success. Time spent in any of NHDI’s programs is an experience most children never forget – and for many, it’s life-changing.
