Budding Dance Stars Bring "Harlem Night Song" to NJPAC

(NEWARK, NJ) -- A spectacular young dance troupe will salute legendary performers from Harlem's Golden Era in a high-energy performance when National Dance Institute (NDI) presents "Harlem Night Song" at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) on Sunday, March 11, at 3:00pm. Tickets are $5.

“This show fits perfectly with our goal of spotlighting the brightest new talent while inspiring young people in the audience to explore the arts and the works of iconic artists like Duke Ellington, Florence Mills, and other stars of Harlem’s rich dance and music history,” said John Schreiber, CEO of NJPAC. “We invite families and all ages to come out and experience this wonderful performance.”

Audiences will delight to dozens of young dancers from National Dance Institute's Celebration Team as they stomp at the Savoy, greet the Harlem Hellfighters, cheer for Joe Louis and shuffle along at the Hoofer's Club. The dancers range in age from 9 to 15, and come from schools throughout the Metropolitan area.

New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise founded National Dance Institute in 1976 in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage all children—regardless of background, ability, or socioeconomic status—and motivate them toward excellence. Over the last four decades NDI has transformed the lives of more than 2 million children through its award-winning arts and learning programs and public performances.

About National Dance Institute (NDI)NDI was founded in 1976 by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise, and leads the field of arts education with a model program that is replicated worldwide. Under the Artistic Direction of Ellen Weinstein, NDI uses dance and music to instill in students a love of the arts, a passion for learning, and a desire to strive for their personal best.  At the root of NDI’s methodology is the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage all children—regardless of background, ability or socio-economic status—and motivate them toward excellence.  In addition to programming in New York City, NDI has 13 associate programs in the United States, and one in Shanghai, China. In 2011, NDI opened the doors to the National Dance Institute Center for Learning & the Arts in Harlem, allowing the organization to further its mission and expand its reach. Since its founding, NDI has impacted the lives of over two million children. No child pays a penny to participate in NDI’s core programs thanks to the generosity of public and private donations.
