OUR PROGRAM: If you enter a typical children’s dance class you might see Ballet Barres, tight buns, and teachers wagging their fingers for students to straighten their knees. For many young dancers the wonderful fantasy of starting dance is quickly replaced by discipline and uncomfortable positions. While dance can be quite hard work and requires much dedication and yes-discipline, Little Leapers offers a different and unique approach to children’s dance classes.
WHAT IS LITTLE LEAPERS?: We are a curriculum based children’s dance program offered throughout the United States. Our program will enrich the lives of every student with the use of movement and literacy to help them develop as not only as a dancer, but a student. Our curriculum foster’s every child’s imagination and love for dance through movement, play, costumes and props. In a Little Leapers class, students learn fun stretches in a playful way. They learn all of their proper dance terms while fantasizing, creating, or acting out scenarios. They also learn how dance is a way to communicate without using words. The most popular part of the class, is story time. Each week the students sit as the teacher reads a classic tale. They then get dressed up in lovely costumes and follow the teacher as they reenact the story to beautiful and theatrical music. Using their newly learned dance moves, and fun props children are quickly whisked away to a world of magic and play all while learning.
