The Love of dance/movement and learning
For the safety and comfort of all our students, Kinderdance® requires the proper foot and dance/movement attire to be worn during classes. See your teacher for which items are needed for the particular program your child is enrolled in. They will enjoy the classes even more when dressed in attire, ready to jump and move!
A happy child is a Joy to Behold! Anyone who has ever watched a child jump for joy when a parent comes home knows intuitively that small children express their feelings with MOVEMENT as well as words. Movement, music and DANCE can be natural tools for learning. Influential child psychologists and educators like Piaget and Montessori agree that a planned developmental program in MOVEMENT should be part of every child’s education. Since early childhood education is the foundation for higher education, how a child “learns to learn” will have a lasting influence throughout his or her school years. Kinderdance, where children “learn how to learn” when they learn how to DANCE and MOVE!
Children “learn how to learn” while they learn how to dance and move. Our programs teach to the total child which means socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. Our programs include educational concepts that are incorporated into each class that build upon their current stage of learning. Numbers, colors, shapes, creative thinking, imagery, language development, social skills, gross and fine motor skills, along with building a child’s sense of self to others are focused on through out the progression of each program.
Your children’s education and welfare are our main priorities
