August 07, 2014 // Franchising.com // Melbourne, FL, - July 2014 Kinderdance® celebrated Thirty Five Years at its 35th annual "Continuing Education Conference" July 24-26 at The Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Franchisees from around the world gathered to learn and share new and exciting teaching concepts and dance programs that help in the fight against childhood obesity.
The Kinderdance employees, franchise owners, and guests attended the President’s Reception on Thursday evening and the Franchisee Awards Dinner on Saturday night.
Why Kinderdance®? Thirty Five Years ago, 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 are an integral part of a child’s school day focusing on a child’s total mind/body development. All of the Kinderdance® programs are designed to prepare children to enter the mainstream educational system both physically and mentally.
"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.
All Kinderdance franchisees have successfully completed their Kinderdance training program and are currently certified to teach Kinderdance® programs to young children in their communities.
"For young children, movement, music and dance are natural tools for fitness, learning and communicating while expressing their feelings," says Kinderdance President, CEO Richard Maltese.
Kinderdance®, with 130 Franchisees in 36 states and 8 countries, 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. Children learn through a professionally researched and proven curriculum of dance, motor development, and fitness instruction combined with educational tutoring taught by fully trained Kinderdance® instructors.
Kinderdance® 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.
