Kinderdance® International is recognizing Ms. Tamara Salume as Franchisee of the Month for May 2020.

Tamara started dancing in her native Guatemala at the age of 3 and during her dancing career; she performed and participated in dance competitions worldwide.  Tamara holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial psychology and worked in the field for 3 years. In 2017, Tamara will complete an MBA this year from the Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala and a second master’s degree in management with a Concentration in Entrepreneurship from Tulane University in New Orleans.

Tamara has always been interested in the arts and strongly believes that dance and movement programs develop a child’s cognitive, social, emotional and communication skills. Tamara says “after doing my research on different children’s franchise organizations, my desire to be part of a leader in children’s developmental dance and movement led me to Kinderdance®. The solid corporate support, increasing demand for quality dance and movement programs really stood out to me”. With a passion for dance, movement programs and love for working with children, Tamara has enjoyed enriching the lives of children in Guatemala!

As a Certified Early Childhood Movement Specialist, Tamara brings Kinderdance® programs to young children on site at childcare centers, preschools, and other childcare facilities in her Guatemala. Ms. Salume loves what she does, and it shows through the respect and admiration she receives from the children she teaches as well as their parents and the directors she works with. Ms. Tamara makes sure each child feels special and enjoys the Kinderdance experience!

We feel honored to include Ms. Tamara as part of our family and we proudly recognize her as our franchisee of the month for May 2020. We look forward to the pleasure of working with her for many more years.
