LEAP! Into the New Year and Follow Your Dreams


From the time they were old enough to understand, I've always told my children that they can do anything they put their mind to.  When you fall down, you get back up and you never give up! I've also told them that we all make mistakes and that we must learn from them...



Other life lessons that I have instilled in my children is that we are all different and unique in our own special ways.  Everyone comes from different lifestyles and backgrounds, everyone has weakness and strengths, others have advantages. We can't let our life struggles stop us from doing what we want to do!  Own it and stand out from the crowd... always be yourself!

LEAP! is a heartwarming movie that takes those life lessons and brings them life!  You will laugh, you will cry, you will be inspired!   This movie encourages children (especially young girls) to have the courage to pursue their dreams, no matter what obstacles might stand in their way.

 

Eleven-year-old orphan Félicie (Fanning) has one dream — to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend, Victor (Wolff), an imaginative, exuberant boy with a passion for creating, has a dream of his own — to become a famous inventor. In a leap of faith, Victor and Félicie leave their orphanage in pursuit of their passions. But there’s a catch: Félicie must pretend to be the child of a wealthy family in order to gain admittance to the prestigious and competitive Opera Ballet School in Paris. And with no professional dance training, she quickly learns that talent alone is not enough to overcome the ruthless, conniving attitudes of her fellow classmates, led by the devious Camille Le Haut (Ziegler). Determined to succeed, Félicie finds her mentor in the tough and mysterious school custodian, Odette (Jepsen), who, along with Victor’s encouraging friendship, help her reach for the stars.


What leaps are you willing to take?  It's never too late!

 NEVER STOP REACHING FOR YOUR DREAMS!
