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!

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!

Kinderdance is the perfect introduction to the world of gymnastics and dance.

Wendy has done an amazing job instilling the love of dance in my daughter. Her program is both fun and educational. My daughter looks forward to what new things she will learn each week.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I pay for tuition?

Tuition must be paid at the time of registration. In the Fall we do also have a registration/insurance fee that covers the entire school year and includes a t shirt that your child may wear to school and in class on their class day.

When is tuition due?

Tuition is due on the 1st of every month. If it is not received by the morning of your child’s first class of the month, a late fee may be assessed. If you are not able to pay by that time, please let me know ahead of time and we will be more than happy to work something out with you. A reminder will be sent out to parents as a reminder that tuition will soon be due.

How do I pay for tuition?

Tuition may be paid online through our website. You may enter your parent account with classjuggler monthly to make payments. There is no extra charge to you for this service. You may also pay through Venmo or PayPal, please email me for more details.

When do classes begin?

Most of our schools go year round. We start our year in September and go through May. Students may enroll at any time during the school year. During the Summer some schools are closed and some do not meet. Information will be given prior as to Summer sign up instruction for those schools continuing during the Summer.

Can I cancel?

You may start or stop classes at any time. If you do wish stop at any time, we do ask that you let us know 30 days before stopping classes. If we do not receive notice that your child will be stopping, they will be continued to be picked up for classes. We will not know you wish for them to discontinue if you do not notify us.

Do we have access to the teachers?

We love parents and families and love for them to be involved! If you wish to speak with your child’s teacher at any time, please contact Ms. Wendy (wendydances@hotmail.com or 512-669-9919) to arrange a time to meet/speak. We welcome you to drop in on our child’s class, however it is best if you try to not let them know you are there and can watch without them seeing you!

What materials does my child need for class and what should they wear?

Your registration fee in the Fall includes a t shirt your child will receive. They may wear this t shirt to school on their class day with leggings or shorts or anything that is comfortable to move in to wear in class! Both Kinderdance and Kindergym students will receive a t shirt if you paid a registration fee along with tuition. Students that start classes later in the year or in the Summer may purchase a t shirt if they wish. Please contact Ms. Wendy if you wish to purchase a t shirt.

Our Kinderdance students need to bring both ballet and tap shoes since we are doing both ballet and tap in class. Please label all shoes with your child’s name. We prefer ballet shoe strings to be cut short or double tied so they do not come untied during class. We also prefer tap shoes that have buckles or elastic, not ties.

Do you have a recital?

We have two performance opportunities during the year. Our Kinderdance students have the opportunity to perform at Stonebriar Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Sunday, December 2. On Saturday, May 18, 2019, we will hold our annual year end demonstration (recital) in which both our Kinderdance and Kindergym students will participate in. This recital will take place at Live Oak Elementary School. More details will be sent home to families prior to these two performance opportunities.
