Leap N Learn

Leap N Learn is a 12 week program where classes focus on creative movement and ballet. The students study a variety of dance concepts while working on spatial awareness, problem solving, and strengthening the body and brain. The program culminates with an "informance" for the parents, school, and community. Colorado Ballet provides students with dance wear and the opportunity to attend a Colorado Ballet performance at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Select Leap N Learn students are invited to participate in a Summer Dance Camp at Colorado Ballet Studios, and one student is chosen annually for a full-year scholarship to Colorado Ballet Academy.
Scholarship students have performed with the professional company in various productions,
including The Nutcracker and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

"Over these two years, I’ve seen her go from afraid to move, to spending hours on choreographing shows for our family.  She’ll sometimes experiment with ways to move around in the house that clearly show the ballet that she’s practiced in class.  I know for certain that she is much more confident in her body and her movement than she was." -Parent of a Polaris at Ebert Elementary student
