Kinderdance is more than just a dance program. Our developmental dance, motor development, gymnastics, and fitness programs, blended with academics, can build self-confidence and self-esteem in young children and they are specifically designed for boys and girls, ages 1.5 years and up. 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. For preschool age children, movement, music and dance can be natural tools for learning as well as expressing. 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. And since early childhood education is the foundation for higher education, how a preschool child learns to learn will have a lasting influence throughout his or her school years.
