KinderDance of North Austin’s Programs encourage children to have fun and gain a love for learning by associating it with something that comes naturally — movement, music, dance, and fitness! Cost for the class will be $5 payable directly to the teacher. Our dance class is an age appropriate dance and creative movement program designed to develop gross motor skills, movement creativity, physical development (flexibility, strength, balance, coordination), tumbling, body awareness and communication skills! More information on Kinderdance of North Austin can be found at www.northaustindance.com.

****** Instructor Bio:
Kate LeClair, and Jerrika Joubert
As Doulas and Educators within this Positive Birth Community Collective, we value ourselves as women, partners, and mothers.
We are passionate women with visions and goals of providing a place where birth is normal. Believing that birth is a right of passage and that each woman deserves the opportunity to enter into motherhood in power and dignity, we empower each woman to participate actively on her journey through pregnancy and childbirth. We will support you through this process with education, encouragement, and support.
We hope to encourage and inspire you to explore creative ways to nurture both your families and your own contributions to the world through your gifts.
As mothers and women, we believe that we all have something to give, and a woman should not have to choose between motherhood and fulfilling herself outside of the home.
Congratulations! We are blessed to be on this journey with you. Welcome to our Positive Birth Community.
