Ms. Leah

Teaches tap, ballet, jazz, all ages

Leah co-founded Heart and Soul Dance in 2013, and has been teaching for 13 years. “I started dancing at age 2, and just kept on dancing,” Leah says. “Dance has been a big part of my life.  I went through auditions, competitions and conventions as both a student and a teacher.” Prior to founding Heart and Soul Dance, Leah taught at Dance Continuum for 10 years. She also was a preschool and pre-k teacher. “I’ve always worked with children,” she says. While she was teaching, she attended college and studied both dance and child development.  Leah married her high school sweetheart and they have two little dancing girls of their own.
