SHINE BRIGHT, LIKE A DIAMOND!
“Our annual SHINE Awards Ceremony spotlights and further illuminates our Program's brightest stars, celebrating the glory of their 'reach for the moon'
moments and the beautiful radiance of
their 'shooting star' personal achievements.”
— Genieve Hanley, Managing Director
The SHINE Awards
Over the years, we've never been afraid to toot our own horn.
Sheesh! We work hard! We deserve it!
But the real pride and joy comes from the moments we applaud and celebrate the work and accomplishments of others - those students, parents, guardians, tutors and fans who not only champion our Program, but together are the cornerstone
of all we do and achieve here at LEAP.
Our SHINE Awards Ceremony takes place annually at the start of each calendar year,
a time when we, by virtue, deeply reflect on the year gone by and highly anticipate the one ahead. A time when we note the lessons that grew out of our mistakes and set goals and resolutions for more growth, with eagerness and enthusiasm.
It is also a time when we celebrate our anniversary, which falls on January 9th.
These are magnetic reasons for us all to come together and rejoice,
especially considering that most of our members would have completed their annual dance and art exams in December, and the results of their successes
are fresh voluminous. At this event we reveal their results!
Report cards, certificates, ribbons, medals, trophies and coveted titles
are the order of the day, as our SHINE Awards name each star in our LEAP 'sky'.
