The recreational dance program at Leigh’s School of Dance is one of the best-known and strongest programs in Johnson County, Kansas. Designed to be a fun activity for all ages, students receive professional training and end the year by participating in our annual June recital. We also offer summer classes and a variety of 8-week “mini-sessions” throughout the year so dancers can try a class and make sure they like it before they commit to a full year.
