About Groove Move Kids LLC
Groove Move Kids was founded with one purpose—to encourage children to explore the simple joys and benefits of grooving and moving. We are based in Berkeley, CA and are a registered Limited Liability Company (LLC) with the State of California. Groove Move Kids is licensed, bonded, and insured. Our high-energy and developmentally appropriate classes offer children early and broad exposure to creative movement, dance, and basic gymnastics tumbling. By partnering with Groove Move Kids, schools and childcare centers have a fantastic opportunity to enrich their current curriculum with a turnkey value-add program benefiting children and parents. Through Groove Move Kids, parents can introduce their children to creative movement, dance, and basic gymnastics tumbling at a reasonable price. Typically, classes are held onsite during a child’s regular school day so there’s no additional time or scheduling burden on parents.
