LEAP! is our rigorous training program for adults dedicated to dance. In a conservatory-style setting, students from numerous levels (beginning to intermediate) learn to articulate the language of dance with skill and passion. Through a comprehensive curriculum, LEAP! students study ballet, modern, repertory, and jazz for 5-9 hours each week with some of the area’s finest dance educators. To culminate the season, LEAP! students will perform an evening of works learned in repertory classes throughout the year. (Scroll down to “Schedule” to see the 2018-19 LEAP! class schedule.)
