Description

Listen.Think.Leap! is a creative movement podcast that introduces children to dance concepts, critical thinking, self regulation, body awareness and literacy skills through games and easy to follow movement instruction. At Listen.Think.Leap! we believe every child should have access to quality dance education and the tools to explore and build confidence in their creative voice through movement. We believe every child deserves the chance to engage in play based learning that doesn't happen in front of a screen. We believe every grown up should have access to worry free learning resources for their children regardless of financial or time constraints. We believe with just a little bit of space to move and an internet capable device all of these are possible to achieve. At Listen.Think.Leap! we want to make it easy to say, "Keep dancing kids!"
