NDI New Mexico Grant From Continuous Pathways Foundation Benefited Pojoaque, Española Students

SANTA FE, NM—NDI New Mexico was awarded a $4,000 grant in March from the Continuous Pathways Foundation in Pojoaque. The funding was used to support NDI New Mexico’s programs in Pojoaque and the Espanola Valley during the 2018-19 school year.

On May 16-17, 2019, hundreds of children performed together in NDI New Mexico’s End-of-Year Event, “Our Dancing Feet!” held at Espanola Valley High School. The show celebrated NDI-NM’s 25th anniversary and the power and magic of dance in children’s lives. It was attended by over 4,000 community members.

Funding from the Continuous Pathways Foundation was used to serve 615 Northern New Mexico children and 10 public and BIE elementary schools through participation in NDI New Mexico’s transformative outreach in-school and advanced training programs. Participation in these programs has been shown to lead to significant improvements in children’s skills, attitudes and behaviors related to academic engagement, confidence, discipline, physical fitness, risk-taking, and well-being.
