As a dancer of nearly two years, I found myself hopping from studio to studio hoping to find a place that felt more like home, but I was never quite able to find anything that truly aligned with my long-term goals as a dancer or as an individual. But once I met Leah, I realized how much different pursuing dance can be.Leah takes the time to understand her students and works with them on finding a lesson cadence and curriculum that accomplishes the individual’s goals as opposed to her own goals. It always feels like she has my interests as a student as her top priority and never loses sight of my goals and aspirations. Her energy is contagious, her support as a teacher is unmatched, and I can’t think of a single time meeting Leah where I didn’t feel better walking away from our lesson than I did walking into the lesson.
My husband and I have taken private dance lessons with Leah for over 2 years now. She is fabulous! She always shows-up with a smile and her passion for dance comes through immediately. She is a great teacher - patient, fun, and always teaching us tricks to learn new dance steps. She’s the best!
I’ve taken a few workshops with Leah. She is one of the best teachers I’ve seen. By the way, this comes from a dancer/instructor herself :) I like the way she designs her classes focusing equally on teaching the skills, as well as making it fun and creative. It is truly an enjoyable experience and I look forward to taking more classes from her in future.
I’ve known Leah for about 15 years, and she has always been an incredible dancer and a wonderful person. My now wife and I had the opportunity to take lessons with her for our first dance over the past two months, and Leah’s passion for both dance and teaching was evident at a level I hadn’t seen before!I would recommend Leah as a teacher to anyone with any level of dance experience. You’re sure to leave having learned new dance skills and gained a new friend!
Leah is such a fantastic teacher. From the very first lesson I had with her over two years ago, she has been a delight to learn from. She very quickly realized the ways that I learn best, and was able to break things down to the level of detail that I need to feel confident with each new step. Her passion for teaching and her genuine care for everyone around her shines in every conversation and lesson I have had with her, and I never once felt like I was getting a “cookie-cutter” lesson; every lesson and every step was taught in the way that made the most sense to me, and it is obvious that was because Leah takes the time to ensure that each student she has is getting the best she that can give them.Coming from zero prior experience myself, I can also tell you that even if you think you will not like dancing and someone is dragging you to your first lesson against your will, I promise that after one lesson with Leah, you will be a fanatic. I know, because I am one now, and that it all because of Leah.I gladly recommend Leah to anyone who is interested in learning to dance!
Not only is Leah a beautiful and talented dancer, she is an incredibly gifted teacher as well. She is able to read what motivates people and teach to that. In a group class setting with mixed skill levels, she’s inclusive and personal, challenges, and encourages. Whether it is your first lesson or 1000th, she is your biggest fan. I want to be perfect the first time I try any new dance routine, I don’t want to look dumb or clumsy, which has inhibited me from trying at times. I’ve been able to let a lot of that go, to allow myself the freedom to look silly in front of others. Leah has been one of the primary factors of that gift of freedom to learn and grow. She’s so genuine in her love of dance and sharing it with others.
