October 2018: “The last four months have been a new and exciting adventure with the National Dance Institute (NDI). One minute I might be sending a few emails, and the next minute I’m being swept out of the office and into a dance class. Today, I was able to help supervise a new in-school partnership and was pulled on stage to dance with our new kiddos! I think I learned as much about counting steps as they did. My supervisor has taught me that more than anything working at NDI is about always being ready to take part in the joy we’re working to create every day. Luckily, dancing makes that pretty easy.”
