Have FUN on Purpose with Intellidance®!
Become a Certified Intellidance® Tykes Teacher!
I've taken Intellidance® Tykes with both my children and loved it! It's such an interdisciplinary program that meets and inspires young and growing minds. It's educational, physical and emotional component are outstanding. I would recommend this program!
Mother and Educator, Canada
My two children have been dancing with Jessica from the time they were babies. Intellidance® has offered both my son and daughter opportunities to learn and advance their movement skills, coordination, and balance through music and play. Each level, from babies to kids, introduces new challenges and progression.
As a health care professional, it is amazing to watch my own children and others, develop and change throughout each session! Jessica's cohesive lesson plans include fresh materials and music with unique and personal takes on popular rhythms and songs. Her background in education, special needs, and movement is evident in her teaching style.
Parents have as much to learn in Intellidance® as their children. You will discover new ways of fostering development and to use music and play to implement them.
Intellidance® is an innovative approach to early childhood development!
Beatrice Leung Morison
Physical Therapist and Mother, Canada
I was introduced to Intellidance® in 2011 when my daughter was born. Intellidance®, and more specifically Ms. Jessica, taught me about my daughter's development in an easy to understand manner. I grew to be a more confident mother thanks to what I learned. When I discovered I was pregnant again when my daughter was 11 months old, I knew I didn't want to go back to teaching in the traditional sense with the school board, so I trained to become an Intellidance® Teacher.
Intellidance® has allowed me to continue to do what I love- be home with my children as they grow AND teach others dance, music and creative play. Intellidance® has also contributed to my daughter blossoming into a clever, affectionate little girl who adores interacting with people, and it has helped my son to thrive in an environment where he can develop his physical movement skills at his own pace. Our family has been truly blessed to be a part of the Intellidance® family!
