Featuring Jacques d'Amboise and the National Dance Institute
Video Cover - Who's Dancin' Now? In 1976, one of the world's greatest dancers began a project that would change the lives of at least half a million people. That year, the National Dance Institute was founded by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d'Amboise as a way of introducing dance to students in the public school system.

The unique introduction was captured in the 1983 Academy Award winning film HE MAKES ME FEEL LIKE DANCIN'. From nerve-racking tryouts to rigorous rehearsals, determined children danced through a year of practice that culminated in a glorious debut at Madison Square Garden. But what became of those young dancers that were seen struggling in the film nearly two decades ago? In WHO'S DANCIN' NOW, producer/director Judy Kinberg revisits them. Now in their mid to late 20s, they have gone on to careers in finance, law science, and education. The film shows them at work and play and includes a reunion.

With Jacques d'Amboise
Video Cover - He Makes me Feel Like Dancing Get your dancing shoes on! From Academy Award winning director, Emile Ardolino (DIRTY DANCING), comes HE MAKES ME FEEL LIKE DANCIN'. An entertaining look at how ballet star Jacques d'Amboise, founder of the National Dance Institute, teaches New York City kids to be creative by kicking up their heels. You follow the preparation, fun, and hardwork that culminate in a performance at New York's Felt Forum by over 1,000 children. Helping with the big event are singer Judy Collins, actor Kevin Kline, dancers Chita Rivera and Peter Gennaro.
