Meet Leanne

Hi everyone!  Thanks for visiting my site. I am a professional dancer, teacher and choreographer originally from Columbus, Ohio. I double majored in Dance and Communication Studies at UCLA and have been working as a professional dancer and choreographer ever since. For the past six years, I have been on tour performing around the world with David Roussève/REALITY Dance Company.


I recently relocated from Hartford, CT to Charlotte, NC for my husband's job. We live in Ballantyne with our boxer puppy, Jazzy. I'm moving into the next chapter of my career as a full-time dance teacher and am looking to help folks in the Charlotte-area and beyond with their movement needs.

I have 15 year's teaching experience in K-12, college and local communities. The dance styles I teach include Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Lyrical/Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Modern/Postmodern and Musical Theatre. I am also a certified group fitness instructor and teach Dance Cardio, Conditioning and Flexibility classes. My award-winning choreography has been created for youth dance competitions, weddings, talent shows, the concert stage, birthday parties, music videos, flashmobs and more.

My passion for teaching is just as strong as my love for dance. Nothing makes me happier than working with a student and watching them gain confidence as they learn and grow. I take great pride in my relationships with my clients and love meeting and working with new people!
