ABC7/KGO-TV's "View From The Bay" highlights the Gala dance celebration of LEAP on Monday, May 10, 2010. Saint Mary's Liberal Arts and Education Program (LEAP) was launched a decade ago and is designed to help remove barriers to educational opportunities for dance artists and prepare them for the inevitable career transition that comes when age or injury takes its toll. LEAP currently serves more than 300 dancers from major companies, film, television and the Broadway stage. LEAP classes are offered in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.
The Lamorinda Weekly, the free newspaper covering the Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda communities, also profiled the tenth anniversary of LEAP.
