NDI New Mexico at The Dance Barns provides rigorous performing arts programming that builds technical skills and personal character in children, values each student and every family, and is accessible to all children. We provide a well-rounded experience in the performing arts, including high-quality technical training and performance opportunities. Technique classes inspire students at all stages of training to achieve personal success; performance opportunities present students challenges to their highest level of ability. The Dance Barns provides classes to all children who desire to study the performing arts regardless of financial capabilities. A sliding-scale fee determines tuition; and families can take advantage of alternative payment options.
