Another school year finished! All the hard work–from our staff, to our teachers, and our students–culminates as it does every year in Leap of Joy’s biggest event: our annual recital, Care to Dance.
And what an event it was! Our 2019 show was held at the wonderful Boyd Vance Theatre, located in the George Washington Carver Museum in East Austin. We really loved this venue and are so thankful we had the opportunity to perform in it.
As a dancer myself, I know what it means to work so hard on a dance and then have the opportunity to perform it for my loved ones. No matter what your age, it is the grand moment, the goal which you work towards from the beginning. Here at Leap of Joy, it means so much to us to be able to give our kids the opportunity to perform. These kids work so hard, and it makes us so proud to see them shine on stage!
This year, our recital took place on May 5th, 2019–Cinco de Mayo! We had a killer raffle giveaway this year, with all sorts of amazing prizes, including tickets to the Alamo Drafthouse, date night provided by Il Brutto & Sway, jewelry from Kendra Scott, and our grand prize, two VIP tickets to ACL 2019! Congratulations to all of our lucky, lucky winners!
Finally, we’d like to thank all of you who came out to celebrate with us. Both the Leap of Joy staff as well as our students worked very hard to put this show together, and it means so much to see so many people out there willing to support our cause.
