Residency Program

When a school signs up for NHDI’s Residency Program, every student (and the faculty, if they choose) gets the opportunity to dance. NHDI’s energetic, professional teaching artists introduce the children to the joy of the arts through dance, teamwork, listening and practice. By the end of the program, children learn that there is no end to what they can achieve with their bodies and their minds. The pride that comes as a result is unparalleled.

The participating grade levels learn basic dance techniques and a dance choreographed specifically for their age and developmental level. The Residency Program offers curriculum-themed shows with dances that challenge elementary and middle school students. At the end of the residency period, schools may elect, at no additional cost, to have students participate in a performance of their dances for friends, family and community members.

NHDI conducts residencies at 20 or more schools throughout the greater Monadnock Region each school year, and we’re now ready to add more. If you are a parent or school administrator (or even a K-8 student) and would like to learn more about how to bring a NHDI residency to your school, send us an email or call the office.
