Children's Dance Header_2.png

  CHILDREN'S DANCE (GENERAL)  

From tiny tots to towering teens, we've got our you covered when it comes to finding a great way to channel and harness your children's creativity, talent, personality and energy! Involving your youngster in a LEAP dance class notably improves his/her physical health - flexibility, range of motion, strength, stamina, muscle tone, posture, balance and coordination. Dance also fuels a child's social and psychological wellness by building their self-esteem, discipline, sense of self and awareness, expression, communication and appreciation for team dynamics. Their cognitive development is also prominent in dance classes as they master musicality, use of memory, expand their knowledge and increase their vocabulary.

Genres taught at LEAP in our general dance classes include ballet and jazz (as the core dance forms), lyrical, modern, Afro-Caribbean, African, Latin, swing, hip-hop and a bit of acrobatics for added range.

Dancers are placed into fun-named teams according to their age when they enroll, and they graduate from class to class as they grow. Since the introduction of Covid-19 regulations and restrictions we have divided most of our team into two sets, to facilitate proper social distancing during our sessions.

Visual ArtsHeader_2.png

  VISUAL ARTS (CHILDREN)  

Did you know it is a proven fact that kids who take part in visual arts classes, tend to do better in technical subjects like Math and Science? Many studies show that there is a direct, important correlation between art and academic and achievement. Visual art is a powerful, hands-on way for kids to learn, develop fine motor skills, enhance their critical thinking abilities, and perceive, respond to, create and expressively communicate through images, forms and shapes.

Our little artists are encouraged to use their limitless imaginations to create masterpieces that are guided by their growing skills and knowledge of international art.

Doodlers: 5:00pm - 6:00pm
