About Me
Hello, my name is Krista McCandless. I am the owner of Tap And Tumble Inc., and I have been teaching preschool dance, gymnastics, tumbling, and tap & ballet programs to children for over 25 years. I began Tap And Tumble because I enjoy teaching our program to the children and watching them develop and progress. We promise to nurture your child as if he or she was our own.
My Philosophy
Our mission is to provide a fun loving environment in which the students are taught to develop their own unique abilities and talents. We aim to meet the needs of all students by offering numerous programs. Tap And Tumble strives to instill in each child that hard work produces achievement. Our teachers promote self-esteem which blossoms with that achievement. Our dedicated staff teaches with positive reinforcement and promotes positive thinking, self-discipline, and confidence. Our students are constantly monitored as to their progress and are encouraged to develop creativity, poise, technique and self-esteem. Our children gain many memories and friendships as a result of being in Tap And Tumble.I am committed to providing a program which allows children to explore and grow. At Tap And Tumble, we allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. We incorporate music and props into our programs to enhance their creativity and promote confidence . We believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children need to have fun!
