I had previously posted about the fantastic ballet class that my daughter attends through Leap Dance Studio. I am now pleased to say that I have had the opportunity to photograph almost all of the classes that Leap offers at all three of their locations around Denver. The locations Scheitler Rec Center in Northwest Denver, Cook Park Rec Center in south-east Denver and Central Park Rec Center in Stapleton give families many choices for children to pursue their favorite dance styles. Creative movement for the little ones, ballet, tap and hip-hop are all offered by the wonderful instructors at Leap.
As this semester comes to a close all of the classes are very busy preparing for the final recital. The excitement and dedication from the young dancers is amazing and the production should be fantastic.
Leap Dance Studio is a wonderful place for children to discover the joys of dance. Elizabeth Ellis and her team of dedicated instructors have created fantastic opportunities for children to experience ballet, tap, hip-hop and creative movement in many locations around Denver.
The images here highlight Ballet I and represent the beginning of a series that will eventually cover all of the classes that Leap offers. This class is made up of 5 and 6 year old young ladies, eager to begin their lives as ballerinas. The energy outside of the studio, as the ladies await their invitation to enter, is fantastic. There is lots of bouncing, twirling and excitement that seems to materialize as soon as the magic shoes don precious feet. The students are very serious about their lessons as soon they will perform a season ending recital. A fitting culmination to lots of hard work and fun.
