What Is Leap 'N Learn?

The Leap "N Learn program is designed to be an effective, safe, progressive, and developmentally appropriate way for 3- to 12- year-old students to learn dance.

Designed by master teacher Beverly Spell and expert child psychologist Dr. Annie Spell, the syllabus combines the healthiest practices for teaching children ballet technique, while simultaneously encouraging pretend play amongst the youngest students to maintain a positive and fun environment.

Capitalizing on the naturally occurring cognitive and neural development of 

children, this syllabus provides the tools and knowledge necessary for the creation of a successful learning environment.

Through an appreciation and utilization of natural development, students will acquire motor, cognitive, and social skills beneficial for later life roles, including that of an adult dancer.

Early Childhood Program

Our early childhood program is specifically designed to provide boys and girls between the ages of three and eight with a strong foundation in dance and movement.

Our focus is on the basic elements of:

  • Physical space and how we relate to it as an individual and group member

  • Locomotor & non-locomotor movements

  • Musical awareness

  • Opposites, directions, and pathways

  • Elementary positions and movements of ballet

In addition to these physical elements, we integrate the intellectual concepts of:

  • Self-awareness

  • Teamwork

  • Creative Expression

  • Imagination

  • Basic body and health awareness

The prgram also helps children learn the basics of classroom behavior and manners, which include learning how to take turns, following another dancer or leading the way, waiting patiently, working together with others, and having a positive attitude.
