Leah grew up in Long Beach, California where she trained in a variety of styles at notable studios including The Dance Factory, Onstage Dance Center, and Edge Performing Arts Center. She then continued her training under the direction of Rikki Jones with the Los Alamitos Dance Program, where she began to hone her love of performing and trained intensively in Jazz and Lyrical styles. From there, she went on to attend UCLA where she studied Economics and Visual and Performing Arts Education, giving her the opportunity to combine her knowledge of dance with a pedagogical influence that ignited her love of teaching. While in college, Leah also had the honor of performing with ICARUS Contemporary Dance Company, where she later went on to serve as Executive Director. Since then, dance has taken her all over California where she has been lucky enough to share her love of dance with students throughout Southern California and the Bay Area, in addition to continuing to perform and train under the direction of Twinkle Star-Creator, Tiffany Henderson and ConDanza Company Director, Cesar Degollado. Leah is incredibly passionate about sharing her knowledge of dance and couldn’t be more excited to bring her style to the wonderful schools of Colorado.
