Leighton Dance Project is the innovative new dance studio owned and directed by CORE’s Artistic Director Kelli Leighton. The studio embodies her philosophy to celebrate dance as a tremendously powerful art form and provides a complete and well-rounded education to dancers, instilling technique and discipline as well as nourishing passion for dance. Instruction is available for all ages, and includes classes in contemporary, jazz, tap, ballet and hip-hop. As the home of CORE Contemporary Dance, Leighton Dance Project provides the students and community with an ongoing connection with a professional dance company, both as artists and role models.
