Kinderdance® International is recognizing Ms. Susan Racette as Franchisee of the Month for January, 2019.

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 Masters 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 recently upgraded to a Gold level franchise. Susan’s team of teachers are offering over 30 classes to children in her community.

As a Certified Early Childhood Movement Specialist, Susan brings Kinderdance® programs to young children on site at child care centers, preschools and other child care facilities in her community. Susan finds Kinderdance to be very 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 January 2019.  We look forward to the pleasure of working with her for many more years.
