ARTISTIC 

PROGRAMS

INTENSIVES

Our intensive programs are offered internationally throughout the year and are led by an exceptional collective of respected artists. The programs range from week-long, day-long, and even 3-hour-long experiences where we explore and make work together. They are anchored by process-based exploration of the core disciplines of theater, voice, dance, and spoken word. We also explore visual art, songwriting, composing music video production, improvisation, photo/videography, and crafts. The outcome might be a film, a musical, a play, an art installation, an album, a gig, a drag show, or something we can't imagine yet because it is made and co-created by the participants in the room.

LEAP embraces everyone’s creative talents, from musical theatre to art. What excites me the most about the work we do at LEAP is that everyone is included, and each individual talent and ability is utilised to create the pieces we put together. To me, being on the Leading Edge means believing I can achieve what I initially did not imagine. I push myself to take the leap, because I am confident within myself. At LEAP, anything is possible
