National Dance Institute’s 2024 Event of the Year, “Earth’s Song,” brings together over 150 talented children from New York City schools in vibrant performances of dance and live music from June 15th through June 18th.

Sparked by the urgency of climate change, “Earth’s Song” honors the living, breathing environment. Through the power of the arts, our young dancers explore the preciousness of water and the extraordinary beauty and intelligence of forests alongside the ravages of pollution, industrial waste, and wildfires on Earth’s land and waterways. From the tiniest hummingbird, bee, and butterfly to the brightest blue sky, NDI celebrates the many gifts of the Earth, aiming to foster a deeper connection with the natural world and a future based on compassion, community, and creative solutions.

Directed by Mary Kennedy, “Earth’s Song” will feature a new work by NDI Helen Stambler Neuberger Artist-in-Residence Tiffany Rea-Fisher, along with original works created by NDI’s brilliant team of choreographers, musicians, and designers.

ASL Interpretation is being provided at all performances with support from the New York State Council on the Arts and the Theatre Development Fund’s Accessibility Programs through its TAP Plus grant program. To reserve ASL seating, please enter the access code 4ASL before selecting seats.
