Twinkle Star and Shining Star Instructor
Leah began her dance training at age 6, under the instruction of Debbie Daniel Wells at The Dance Factory in Austell, GA. There she studied ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop for the next 8 years. During her time there she was a competitive dancer, attending both regional and national dance competitions. After leaving The Dance Factory in 1999, she continued her dance education at Rhythm Dance Center in Roswell, GA studying pointe and contemporary dance, while simultaneously attending classes at Center Stage studying acro. Most recently Leah has taken on the role of dance mom as her daughter, Ansley, joined us last season, becoming part of the Dance Works family. Being a dance mom, Leah understands the importance of focusing on proper technique and body alignment while also incorporating fun and creativity into her classes. Leah hopes to pass her love of dance along to her students so they, too, can love it as much as she and her daughter.
