SUMMER 2016 Leap 'N LEarn Workshops

Leap 'N Learn is pleased to present three dance teacher training workshops this summer! With multiple locations and dates, we're looking to make it easier for new and returning dance studios to join us for quality training and preparation for the upcoming dance year. These workshops cover everything you need to know for implementing and getting the most out of the Leap 'N Learn program, curriculum, and resources —  along with awesome refreshers and great bonding experiences, making it exciting and fun to return to every year. 

Please check out the details of each Leap 'N Learn summer dance workshop below to see what would best fit your schedule. Each workshop is three days (except for Workshop II in Louisiana, which includes a bonus day for returning Leap 'N Learn member studios). All full 9 am to 6 pm days include complimentary, tasty lunches. Beverly Spell leads the learning at each event, and while Dr. Annie Spell's content is shared across all, she is only present for Workshop II in Louisiana. Studios are allowed to bring as many attendees as they'd like, and we encourage studio owners to receptionists and dance teachers to student assistants to attend and benefit from the direct insight. If you have any questions, we'd be happy to discuss workshop options, travel arrangements, or anything else. 

These dance teacher training workshops are only open to licensed Leap 'N Learn dance studios. Existing members can email to secure their spots at any of the workshops, and new studios are welcome to join once their licensing is complete — to start that process, please fill out the online application here. We look forward to meeting with our Leap 'N Learn dance families in Kentucky, Louisiana, and Kansas!
