Leap Studios' youth dance programs are supported by the best curricula and research-backed resources to support youth through the stages of their development.
Depending on where dance fits in your family's schedule and your child's interest level, you choose a path that works best for you. Our trained, educated, and experienced faculty take a "student-centred" approach to teaching, so each student is honoured for their unique learning style, abilities, and aspirations - whether it's dance for socialization or advanced training for post-secondary or pre-professional opportunities.
Conveniently located near Aspen Woods in Calgary, our dance school incorporates mind and body development through dance. Leap dancers enjoy an inclusive environment that is both stimulating and nurturing. Leap is not your average dance studio - we aim for so much more than dancing.
"We don't teach kids to make great dancers. We teach dance to make great kids!"
Learning is FUN at Leap Studios! Our expert-developed dance curricula is delivered by nurturing and accredited dance educators. Our focus is on helping dancers see their potential, and be supported to make their goals inevitable!
We offer two terms in a dance season for recreational dancers: Term 1 is September - December. Term 2 is January - June. At the conclusion of each Term, students will perform in a Showcase presentation for their parents!
Dance blends artistry with physical literacy to tell stories through movement and music - and it helps activate the release of feel-good endorphins!
At Leap Studios, our ethos is to help each child discover their own unique talents, craft their creative expression, develop their physical literacy abilities, and build mental resiliency.
Our Performance Program offers students the opportunity to participate in dance competitions and performances to complement their training - but more than that, we are developing friendships and learning the value of teamwork in a supportive community!

There is no limit to what a child can accomplish when they are supported by a community that lifts them up! Dancers age 14 and up can apply to accelerate their mental, physical, and artistic training in our NEW accelerated training program called TRANSFORM.
We know it's been a tough year for dancers who are feeling challenged to keep going after so many disruptions to their training as a result of COVID-19. It's our life's work to keep the love of dance alive for youth and to help them continue to experience the physical and mental benefits of being engaged in regular healthy activity.
