About Us

Kinderdance ®

Kinderdance® is the original worldwide dance, motor development, gymnastics and fitness program that combines academic readiness skills which are specifically designed for children. What makes Kinderdance® unique is that all of our programs incorporate educational concepts in a developmentally designed curriculum that teaches to the total child. We place special emphasis on building “Self Confidence” and “Self-Esteem” in young children.

A happy child is a Joy to Behold! 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. Movement, music and DANCE can be natural tools for learning. 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. Since early childhood education is the foundation for higher education, how a child “learns to learn” will have a lasting influence throughout his or her school years. Kinderdance, where children “learn how to learn” when they learn how to DANCE and MOVE!

We bring our programs to children at different Austin, TX area pre-schools, child care centers and private schools! We teach our classes to children at the center so no need to have to drive them to a separate class or studio!

Class Descriptions

Kinderdance ®

Kinderdance® is a developmental dance, motor development and fitness program, teaching the basics of ballet and creative movement while blending educational concepts. We use many fun props in our classes such as scarves, wands, poly spots and much more!

Kindergym ®

Kindergym® is a developmental floor gymnastics program with emphasis on fun, social and gross motor development, physical fitness and movement education while learning numbers, colors, shapes and words.

We also use a wedge (“cheese”), mailbox and balance beam as well as a large folding mat to help us learn the fundamentals of gymnastics! We also use many props such as hoops, poly spots, cones and more to make our classes as fun, educational and action packed as possible!

Kids Yoga

In Kids Yoga, children learn the foundations of yoga through storytelling, creative imagery, music, songs, speech and communication, use of props and creative movement in a non-religious and non-spiritual manner. The program aims to build children’s self- confidence, self-esteem and self-expression as they develop muscular strength and flexibility, balance, coordination and mental focus. The practice of mindfulness and conscious breathing are incorporated to enhance the development of mind and body connection as we nurture the process of self-regulation, stress management and relaxation.

Testimonials

Parents are talking!…

My daughter Maru - a spunky little 3 year old - has taken dance and gymnastics at her school via Kinderdance.

Whenever I asked how she was enjoying her class, she always replied with great enthusiasm. However, the day she and my mom began to discuss ballet verbage in my kitchen, I was amazed. She knew so much terminology – arabesque and glissade – and all of the positions. I was very surprised and consequently impressed! She decided to try out gymnastics this summer and has just loved it. Maru and I are very happy with her experience with Kinderdance.

My daughter has been taking dance with Ms. Wendy for the past year.

I decided to enroll her after attending a friend’s Kinderdance recital with Ms. Wendy where I was amazed to see 3 and 4 year olds perform together with choreography. I have been to many a dance recital where this age doesn’t do much at all but stand there looking cute so I was very impressed! Ms. Wendy is very fun and energetic with the kids and makes learning dance moves fun. My shy child has really come out of her shell and now dances around the house daily and even in public will climb up on stage! Additionally, Ms. Wendy is very communicative and organized and a joy to work with! I highly recommend Kinderdance!

Our daughter loves being in dance and gym.

She’s been in the class for two years now. She looks forward to it and has learned so much about movement. The recital Ms. Wendy puts on yearly is such a great treat for her and us as parents! Our daughter lights up at the mention of the recital.  The teachers are great and they come to the school during school hours, so there are no extra trips outside of school or on weekends. I can’t wait to put my other daughters in Kinderdance too!

I am the Director at Prodigy Child Development Center...

I am the Director at Prodigy Child Development Center where Kinderdance and Kindergym classes are held. My daughter who also attends the school has attended Ms. Wendy’s gymnastics class for about a year now. She comes home after class and proudly shows our family the new skills she learned at class. She has a baby sister and sometimes it is hard for her to see us giving the baby so much special attention. I think gymnastics has given her an opportunity to develop skills that the baby cannot do that are very impressive and confidence building.

happy mom & child care center director

Both of my kids really enjoyed being a part of Kinderdance and Kindergym!

My daughter can be pretty shy at times, especially around new people or in front of a bunch of people, but she really loved being in dance. She literally asks every day if she’s going to dance and then she shows me all of her moves at home. It’s pretty cute and I can’t thank you enough for teaching her and fostering her love of dance.

Otherwise, they may wear anything that is comfortable to move in to class! These items may be purchased when you register online, you will see the option where you may purchase them upon registration.

Kinderdance students may bring ballet shoes to class. These are shoes are recommended for maximum comfort in class! Please label all of your child’s shoes with their name.

Do you have a recital?

We hold an annual year end demonstration in which all of our students will participate if they wish to. This usually takes place in May.

This performance is optional, not mandatory. 🙂 Our year end demonstration is a low stress event geared toward letting children build their self confidence and having fun!
