January 23, 2017 // Franchising.com // Roanoke, VA - Kinderdance® International Inc, a leader in developmental dance, gymnastics and fitness programs for young children, continues to prove that dance and movement programs receive high marks as a popular children’s franchise in the Hot S.T.E.A.M children’s dance/movement education franchise market by awarding a Silver level franchise to Laura Gallagher. Laura will be teaching Kinderdance programs to children in Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Richmond areas of Virginia.
Laura began dancing, ice skating, and drill team in elementary school. She earned a bachelor’s in Business Management from California State University - Fullerton. After working several years in the Staffing Industry, she had the opportunity to homeschool her children for 6 years. Through her involvement with homeschool co-ops, she learned how much she enjoys teaching children. After being back in the workplace for several years as a sales and project manager, she decided it was time to make another change. Laura’s passion for dance and desire to own a business with flexibility brought her to Kinderdance. Kinderdance was the perfect fit for her. Laura says “she immediately fell in love with the Kinderdance programs and concept”. With a passion for dance and movement programs, Laura will enjoy enriching the lives of children in Lynchburg, Charlottesville and Richmond areas of Virginia. Laura is ready to turn her dream, of being a business owner into a rewarding career with Kinderdance.
