"Kinder Dance with Me" offers dance and sensory-motor activities that enhance timely acquisition of developmental milestones. Established in 2014 this is an exciting one-year progressive program developmentally designed for young children ages 15-24 months old. The "Kinder Dance with Me" program is offered in two formats: 30 minute Parent and Me classes or 15-20 minute Teacher and Me class held at child care facilities.
After 35 years of successfully educating children ages 2-12 years in dance and creative movement,the "Kinder Dance with Me" curriculum offers age appropriate exposure to dance and sensory-motor activities while nurturing the bond between caregiver and child. Caregivers participate and learn to facilitate the natural exploration and progression of motor development through play, laying the groundwork for academic success as the child grows. Activities will emphasize movement, motor development, body action and awareness, social interaction, balance, strength and coordination.
"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" says Kinderdance President, CEO Richard Maltese.
