LEAP Out of February with Leap of Joy!

February has flown by! From St. Valentine's to Mardi Gras, we've been dancing our way into the schools and hearts of Austin! We'd like to wish you a happy February and are excited about all the awesome things that are coming up for us next month!

And without further ado...

Amplify Austin Day is Almost Here!

Just one week left until Amplify Austin! This is the day when everyone comes together to support local charities. This year, Leap of Joy has been selected to participate! From 6 pm on Thursday, March 5th to 6pm on Friday, March 6th, everyone can contribute to their favorite local charities through the I Live Here I Give Here website! You can check out our profile page here.

We absolutely love Amplify Austin, because it allows us to get our message out to so many new people! Leap of Joy is very small, and Austin is so very large! We love the idea of bringing this beautiful city together, and uniting everyone with giving.

We ask that you please consider contributing to our cause. Leap of Joy strives to bring the arts to less fortunate children here in Austin, and even the smallest donation can help us continue our quest! 

And the best news? Tito's vodka is pairing up with I Live Here I Give Here. If you include the hashtag #LoveTitos when you check out during Amplify Austin Day, Tito's will add an extra $5 to your donation toward Leap of Joy!

Coming on March 7th...

We're so excited about our new women-only workshop, Just for Us! Starting on March 7th, we will be hosting the (adults only) workshop at our new space at Headwaters Studio on Rio Grande!

Taught by our amazing instructor Monica Aguilar, this event is all about empowering women through dance and movement! We spend so much time on other's time to spend some time on ourselves. Take a moment to reflect, recharge, and become our best selves!

Leap of Joy + Home Slice

That's right! Our fundraiser at Home Slice is still happening! We've had a TON of participating in this fundraiser and we're so thankful to everyone! We still have a little more than a month left!

How it Works:
Each month has a theme. Perform the specified actions for the month and Home Slice will donate 10% of your food bill to Leap of Joy.

Today's the last day of Febuary!

Visit today for: Dessert First!
They always say life's better when you have dessert first; order dessert as an appetizer in February to qualify for donation! (Single cookies not included. Poor things.)

Starting Sunday, March 1st: Bust a Move! Challenge your friends to a quick dance-off to qualify for donation!

We'd love to see you in action! If you find yourself at Home Slice, we'd love for you to tag us as you bust a move! #LeapofJoy

Director's Note

Another month gone by and one month closer to Leap of Joy’s 8th Care to Dance Performance event on Sunday, May 3rd at Scottish Rite Theater, where our schools come together for their spring recital. It’s an amazing opportunity for the kids and their families. This year is super special because Leap of Joy is celebrating its 10th year anniversary. We are putting together packages of gifts for our upcoming online raffle that has too many good things to list, like VIP ACL tickets, a weekend at Port A, a cozy Airbnb in San Saba, and more! So stay tuned.

It’s been super busy this semester and it is our wonderful staff that has helped augment all our new programs like our Saturday classes for toddlers and the older kids. Once a month, we’ll have a just for women experience with Just for Us - Female Empowerment Through Movement and Dance. Each month will feature a special guest leader and their chosen topic. Our own wonderful Monica Aguilar will lead off with the exploration of self love. It’s going to be wonderful. We have outstanding guest leaders so stay tuned and will let you know more.

Thank you for reading if you got this far down. Leap of Joy is a Leap of Love. My background and education has taught me to  believe that doing good in the world is the most fulfilling experience there is. I believe it.
