NHDI Summer Intensive


2019 NHDI Summer Intensive

Take a Hike


We're headed for the great outdoors!  Lace up those hiking boots and hit the trail with us as we use dance and music to celebrate the beautiful Mount Monadnock that serves as the stunning backdrop of our everyday lives throughout the region.

NHDI's two-week summer dance intensive develops children's enthusiasm for movement and broadens their dance experiences. Workshops in Jazz, Hip-Hop, Modern and NHDI-style dance will be offered.  During the second week, our special guest teaching artist, Dufftin Garcia, will join us from National Dance Institute (NDI) in New York.
