The other night I was thrilled to photograph at the National Dance Institute  at a special  Memorial and Celebration for Shaun O’Brien and Cris Alexander who were  principal dancers at the New York City Ballet  with Jacques d’Amboise.

Through in-school partnerships, workshops, and public performances, NDI uses dance as a catalyst to engage children and motivate them towards excellence.

“The arts open your heart and mind to possibilities that are limitless. They are pathways that touch upon our brains and emotions and bring sustenance to imagination. Human beings’ greatest form of communication, they walk in tandem with science and play, and best describe what it is to be human.”
Jacques d’Amboise
