“Maria’s curriculum has allowed me to offer classes for young kids that I feel comfortable with and confident in. The material is age appropriate and engaging. The structure allows me (and my staff of professional dancers, which means they understand dance but sometimes don’t understand children of this age) to maintain control—mostly, they are 3-year olds, after all! The children enjoy themselves and look forward to class, and I do, too. Having structure means repetition, which allows the kids to really hone their skills and I hear they even practice at home. Because many of my students are long-term, I occasionally add a new activity from later in the curriculum or one I’ve developed myself. This is sufficient to keep the kids involved. I was able to find much of the music Maria suggests on Spotify, making it super easy to begin her program right away. If Maria ever releases a curriculum for the next age group, I will be first in line to buy it.”
