Productions & Recitals

Opportunities for Performance, Outreach and Demonstration 

Little Leapers is a performing arts organization that provides training and performance opportunities to young aspiring dancers in the Blacksburg and Roanoke, VA, area. The organization is committed to helping children build confidence, discipline, and teamwork skills through the art of dance


Spring Production performed every May (late) / Early June

Little Leapers puts on two Spring productions each year. These productions provide an opportunity for the dancers to explore different styles of dance and showcase their talents in a variety of genres. The Spring Production is a chance for the dancers to challenge themselves and grow as performers, and it serves as a recital for all enrolled students.

Little Leapers offers two Spring Productions each year, giving the dancers even more opportunities to perform. One of the productions is a spring musical that puts a fresh spin on a classic, featuring singing, acting, and dancing. The other production is a classical ballet that showcases the dancers' technical skills and artistry.

Both Spring Productions are open to outside dancers as well, providing an inclusive and collaborative environment for young aspiring performers. The productions are a culmination of the hard work and dedication of the dancers and their teachers, and they offer a chance for the entire community to come together and celebrate the art of dance.


All Little Leapers and LEAP Performing Arts students are encouraged to audition for the productions. This inclusive approach ensures that every child has an opportunity to participate in the performing arts and develop their skills. Little Leapers and the LEAP Performing Arts Academy is committed to creating a supportive and nurturing environment that encourages creativity, teamwork, and a love of dance.
