Welcome to the new year, the last year in this decade. I dont know about all of you, but I certainly indulged in all the candy, cake, food and other goodies over Christmas! And now I am getting ready to write that New Years resolution list. You may be doing the same thing. On the top of my list is getting some much needed exercise and we have just the thing if it is at the top of your list too. We have adult tap, ballet and hip hop classes to get you back in tip top shape. And the classes are very reasonably priced. We also accept Freeplay memberships. Come join one of our adult classes.

Free dance week is from Jan 7th thru Jan 11th, so if you know anyone who has thought about taking dance invite them to come try a free class or two. They can get to know our studio and awesome teachers and sign up.

We will be starting our recital prep in February, and with that in mind, if you don‘t want your child to do the recital you will need to come and fill out the form at the front desk before Jan 25th . Otherwise, in February you will be charged the $30 recital fee. We are excited to start prep for our second annual Leaps and Bounds Dance Academy recital!

Have a great New Years Eve and New Years Day. Be safe out there and we look forward to seeing our incredible students back to class starting January 6th.

This month has been so busy, we are a little late getting our blog out. We have had a fun December so far. There has been Polar Express Day and this week many moms are joining their children in dance class for Parents Week. It has been really fun to see all the parents come, and the only cost was some cans of food for the charity Tabitha's way.

There is still time to give the gift of dance to someone you know who is not currently taking dance. For $55 the gift bag contains ballet slippers, tights and a certificate for a month of dance. This is for new students, so maybe you know someone who would love the gift of dance for Christmas.

We have some incredibly talented dancers, and we just had several of them move to being "On Point". They got to go get their point shoes, and then learn how to sew their ribbons themselves and how to tie the ribbons as well. This is a right of passage for ballerina's as they move up through the ranks of learning to dance "en pointe". We are very proud of them!

Christmas break is coming up soon, we will be closing December 21, 2019 and when we come back on Jan 6 we will officially be in 2020 and it is back to the Barr. We love our students and wish you and your parents a very happy holiday season. Go eat too many cookies, sing your hearts out, do some helping of others, and share what you have with those who don't.

The children are back in school, Halloween has come and gone (still some candy around though :0) and it is feeling a lot like fall or even maybe winter since it was the coldest October on record. Hopefully, even if it is cold, the thought of Thanksgiving will warm our hearts with what we have to be grateful for. Among those are always family, friends, and home. I know that we, here at the studio, are grateful for the opportunity to share our love of dance with our talented dancers. We thank you, the parents and grandparents, who share your child with us for an hour our two every week.

Highlights for this month:

Dance with your dancer week

December 9 thru December 14th parents can come dance with their child in class. Tuition to dance with your child will be three cans of food or a large package of toilet paper. These will be donated to the local charity, Tabitha's Way. Cookies will be served after each class. We will have fun!

Holiday Dates November

Leaps and Bounds Dance Academy will be closed for Thanksgiving Wed, Nov 27, 2019 thru

Sat, Nov 30, 2019 so that our families can enjoy Thanksgiving together, and also that ALL IMPORTANT Holiday called Black Friday :) Classes will resume on Monday, Dec 2, 2019.


A reminder that at the end of each month we want to honor our dancers that were born in that month. The teachers give out a small birthday token to the children in their class. If for some reason your child was missed in class, we will have theirs. Please stop by the office and get it.
