Kinderdance® Celebrates 35 Years
US Franchise Organization brings movement education to young children in across the USA
Melbourne, FL - Thirty five years ago Kinderdance® International Inc was founded in Scottsdale, Arizona. In 1985, the first Kinderdance franchise was opened in Houston, Texas.
Why Kinderdance®? Kinderdance® was born out of the idea to reach out to as many young children as possible and involve them in a dance and gross motor development program blended with academics. The Kinderdance programs were designed to prepare children to enter the mainstream educational system both physically, mentally, emotionally and cognitively.
"Our goal is to reach out to as many children as possible across the US, Canada and the World to prepare their minds and bodies for future athletic and academic pursuits. Also, we want to reach out to all those who would join us and take up this challenge as a lifetime career" says Kinderdance President, CEO Richard Maltese.
Kinderdance® is a nationally recognized dance, gymnastics and fitness program for children age’s two to twelve. Their 131 Franchisees currently teach over 12,000 children weekly at over 800 various locations in 35 states and 8 countries.
Kinderdance® places emphasis on building self-confidence and self-esteem in children through learning to share, lead, interact and respond to others’ needs as well as their own. The programs incorporate the arts, movement, education, music, fitness and the fun of learning into a young child’s life and helping in the worldwide fight against childhood obesity.
The company offers the educational movement programs on site to child-care centers, recreational centers, churches, fitness centers, corporate child care, community centers, military bases, public and private schools and may other viable locations.
