National Dance Institute’s Annual Gala is a highlight of the Spring social calendar in New York City, and raises $1.5 million in support of NDI’s award-winning arts education programs. As our largest benefit event of the year, the Annual Gala raises the critical funds necessary to serve thousands of children in New York City public schools each year.
This eagerly-anticipated evening will begin with a festive cocktail reception for its nearly 500 guests, followed by an elegant sit-down dinner punctuated by a spirited live auction, an honors presentation, and special performances by the children of National Dance Institute that will send guests’ spirits and hearts soaring!
Mirroring the theme NDI is infusing into all its classes throughout the New York City public school system this year, the 2019 Gala theme is Voices of Change. Guided by NDI’s masterful teaching artists, our children are learning about individuals throughout history who have used their artistry and voice to effect positive change throughout society. Together, we will honor them and all those who are making the world a better place.
