Tiverton, RI – March 1, 2023 – Kinderdance® International is recognizing Ms. Susan Racette as Franchisee of the Month for March 2023.

Ms. Racette purchased her franchise in 2015. Susan has over 25 years of experience working with children, teachers, and schools. Susan began dancing at the age of 4 with Pauline Parker School of Dance and continued pursuing this passion through college with course studies in dance. She graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Physical Education and furthered her education by pursuing certification in Early Childhood Teaching and a master’s degree in educational leadership. She has worked in both childcare settings and public schools as a teacher, school administrator, and after-school program director. After 8 years in the corporate world training educators, she decided to return to what she is most passionate about – teaching children and blending early learning with creative movement and dance!

Susan’s entrepreneurial spirit and dedication to educating children through dance and movement has strengthened the Kinderdance® brand in her territory.  Kinderdance® Hill Country has seen steady growth. Watching her enrollment and revenue, Susan upgraded to a Gold level franchise in Austin Texas and is now a multi-unit franchise owner with her new territory in Rhode Island, Kinderdance of New England. Susan’s team of teachers are offering many classes to children in both Austin Texas and Rhode Island. We are so proud of her determination and hard work!

As a Certified Early Childhood Movement Specialist, Susan brings Kinderdance® programs to young children on site at childcare centers, preschools, and other childcare facilities in her community. Susan finds Kinderdance to be rewarding, “I was thrilled to discover Kinderdance and the perfect way to blend my calling to teach, lead, build, create, and dance! And that is how I landed right where I am meant to be.”

We feel honored to include Ms. Susan as part of our family and we proudly recognize her as our franchisee of the month for March 2023.  We look forward to the pleasure of working with her for many more years.

With over 200 Franchisees in the US and around the world, Kinderdance® places emphasis on building self-confidence and self-esteem in children through learning to share, lead, interact and respond to others’ needs as well as their own.  The programs incorporate the arts, movement, education, music, fitness, and the fun of learning into a young child’s life.

We are enormously proud of Susan’s contributions to the health and education of young boys and girls in the state of Texas,” said Richard Maltese, CEO, and president of Kinderdance® International. “Ms. Racette’s dedication over the past year has made her an integral part of the Kinderdance® family, and we are happy to have her as a Kinderdance franchisee.”
