Leaps and Bounds 2017 was a major hit! Once again the Junior Company amazed. The show started with Act 1 of La Bayadère set by Faculty Member Judy Sharp. Act 2 entertained us all with pieces created by various guest choreographers as well as Junior Company Dancers Danielle Dawson and Geni Luckenbach. Special thanks to friends, family, and California Ballet Company Dancers who came to watch the show.
