Tessa and Dancercise Kids Honored for Creating Entertaining and Educational Children’s Music CD

Respected Product Review Body Recognizes School Bus Friends for Its Original Sing-Along Music

MINNETONKA, Minn., Dec. 9, 2011 — Dancercise Kids(R), a provider of educational fitness and dance activities for young children, today announced that its founder, Tessa Pfeifer, has won the 2012 Seal of Approval from The National Parenting Center

(www.tnpc.com/search/tnpcarticle2.asp?rec=7451) for her new CD “School Bus Friends.” According to the independent testing panel, the CD “received rave reviews from testers who found it fun to listen to.” Reviewers also commented on how easy it is for young children to understand the lyrics, encouraging the kids to sing along with the music.

The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval program is an independent testing procedure conducted to judge a variety of products introduced and marketed to the parent/child consumer market. Importantly, the panel of testers is comprised of real parents and real children, making the assessment highly credible for consumers. At a time when parents are increasingly pressed for time and money, they are turning to trustworthy sources such as The National Parenting Center to help them choose the most appropriate quality products for their budgets.

“I’m honored to receive The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval for our second CD in a row,” says Tessa. “It’s encouraging to have this kind of acknowledgement for two CDs now, and to know that our music is appreciated by a wide audience. I feel very confident that parents and kids will not only enjoy listening to this CD but will learn something from it too!”

School Bus Friends, like its predecessor “Dance It!” which won the Seal of Approval in 2009, features upbeat, original songs that cover parent-friendly topics in a fun, active way, and continues her efforts to stand out from the more typical rehashed nursery rhymes all too common with children’s music. School Bus Friends is available now at CD Baby (www.cdbaby.com/cd/tessadancercisekids2) and online retailers including Apple’s iTunes(R) store and Amazon.com (www.amazon.com/School-Bus-Friends-Dancercise-Kids/dp/B005SR6IAG/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1322348622&sr=8-19).

Tessa can be seen performing material from School Bus Friends and other CDs in her regular performances at Mall of America(R) in Bloomington, Minn., where she is a regular fixture at the Mall’s “Toddler Tuesday”

(www.mallofamerica.com/events/view/32) events. “We love having Tessa here,” says Mall of America Director of Events and Marketing Operations Jennifer Renstrom. “She always puts on a fun-filled, original, active show and is regularly one of our biggest draws and crowd-pleasers.”

Tessa Pfeifer has been dancing, singing and performing since her early childhood. Having created Dancercise(R) Kids as a successful dance and fitness program across multiple states, she is now concentrating on making the music, activities and lessons accessible to a wider audience through CDs, DVDs, Activity Books and select media partners.
