About the Instructor:

Lisa McCabe, Owner of Lovely Leaps

Lovely Leaps was birthed in the beautiful city of Montreal. While studying dance at Concordia University and volunteering with children in the city, Lisa had a brilliant idea. It was to combine her love of dance and children, creating Lovely Leaps. After completing 5 years as an engineer, Lisa missed the dance world. She left her job and started Lovely Leaps when her daughter was 5 months old with her husband Ricky.

How can I make up a missed class?

Missed classes can be made up in the next 6 week session at The Lullabar or anytime at the Lovely Leaps Studios in Escondido.

If you must miss a class, DO NOT CANCEL THROUGH THE SITE! Your entire spot will be removed by doing so, due to our booking platform settings.

Please contact The Lullabar front desk at 858-345-2283 or email us at bookings@thelullabar.com, and we will be more than happy to make a note that you are missing that specific class.

What is your cancellation policy?

At The Lullabar, we offer a boutique-style class experience tailored just for you. We’re unable to provide a refund for the whole program as we have limited spots, however, you can make up missed classes. We greatly appreciate your understanding regarding this policy.

Can I do a drop-in class?

Yes, if space allows, you can try a class outside our trial week for a single class fee of $30.

Can I bring a friend to try a class?

Yes, if space allows you may bring a friend for a drop-in rate of $30.

How old does my child need to be to start classes?

We welcome children as early as 10 months old to start their journey with us! For the 10-month class, we ask that only one guardian be allowed in the classroom. All others will be directed to the cafe.

Can my nanny or grandparent bring my child to First Leap?

Yes, any guardian can assist your child during their First Leap class.

Can I be in the classroom with my child for classes other than First Leap?

Our goal is for your child to bond with the instructor and become more independent. This fosters quicker learning. We encourage parents to wait in our cafe unless your child is visibly upset.

My child turns 2 in a month. Can they join the ballet/tap class for ages 2-3?

No, they will need to start with the First Leap class first. The instructor can assess their skill level for the 2-3-year-old ballet/tap class and then move them up later.

Can we enroll after the program starts?

If you wish to enroll after our program starts, please contact us at (858) 345-2283.
