The Irene Diamond Summer Dance Institute at the Renown National Dance Institute Is a Great Success.
For the past two summers SGHY has provided stipends to enable two students to attend NDI’s summer institute.
This year SGHY will also sponsor after-school dance programs by NDI for MS 302 and MS 126 students.
Here’s what our students have to say about it:
You learn a lot about jazz, ballet, tap and music that definitely helps everyone in the long run.

I love NDI because at one point in my life all dance to me was people leaping on stage. NDI changed that. At Summer Institute I learned so much about dance;
that it was composed of many different techniques such as tap, modern, ballet, and even stunt. Without music dance wouldn’t be the same.
I had the pleasure of learning from the best dance teachers at Summer Institute and I believe that everyone deserves to
have the same experience that I had with dance.
