Leap Studios' Performance Program is for dancers who are keen to learn diverse dance styles, train in multiple styles, be part of a team, and be profiled on stage in performances either to compete or to WOW an audience! We make sure that every dancer is highlighted in our routines, because we believe that every member of an ensemble is a star!
Our placement auditions are complete - however, you can inquire with our office about spots remaining in our Performance Program!

Ages 6 and Up
Students taking two or more classes from September through June are invited to participate in our Outreach Program!
This is a community and non-competitive performance-focused program where students learn team choreography and share their love of dance with the community, performing at venues such as fairs, recitals, seniors' residences, etc. Outreach choreography rehearsals are outside of regular class, and practiced regularly throughout the season.
Ages 4 - 8
Leap is proud to offer this special "introduction to competitive dance" program developed especially for young beginner dancers to have a successful start in learning skills and performing!
For the Ages 4-6 team:
1 weekly 90-min dance class includes Jazz, Ballet, and Acro. Optional: Add a separate Tap class. Includes 1 choreo routine that performs at 2 local competitions.
For the Ages 6-8 team:
2 weekly 90-min dance classes includes Jazz, Ballet, Tap, and Hip Hop. Optional: Add a separate Acro class. Includes 2 choreo routines that perform at 2 local competitions.
Ages 6 - 18
In addition to taking weekly skill-developing dance classes in Jazz, Ballet, Acro, and Tap and/or Hip Hop, Lyrical and/or Contemporary, students apply to be in a Competitive Division to take part in choreography and attend non-competitive and competitive events (2 or more).
Choreography is cast by our Artistic Directors. Students attend a placement audition in June, and prepare for the following season by taking Summer classes. Choreography classes start between August - October depending on the program.
Ages 14 - 19
Competitive performance Division students are invited to audition for our TRANSFORM team, our top-tier competitive dance ensemble. Students must be highly self-motivated to enter this program. In addition to core dance classes, TRANSFORM members take additional classes in composition, PBT, and injury reduction programming.
Auditions for TRANSFORM are held separately and by invitation-only. Please email email@example.com to inquire.
