"Dance with your heart and your feet will follow."

Leaping Lizards School of Dance

"Leaping Lizards, a dance school in Wellington, New Zealand, prides itself on its first-class dance tuition within a fun and relaxed environment. We have chosen not to offer exams as we focus on sharing our love of dance through creative, original, up to date choreography rather than a set syllabus. Leaping Lizards is a dance school any child can go to dance for pure fun and enjoyment. We look forward to welcoming you into the Leaping Lizards family."
