As an intern and a student with Lea, I received such valuable instruction and guidance. Her knowledge, experience, and vision allow her to inspire and improve all of her students and staff. It was refreshing to be in a studio where the director insists on teaching her students proper ballet technique. Lea’s instruction strengthens your technique to improve performance in any genre. I loved that I could go to class and know I would receive personal corrections and instruction on how to improve. Lea and her staff have wonderful teaching abilities and inspire their students every class. The atmosphere they create allows everyone to feel comfortable as the teachers connect with each student, no matter their age. I am forever grateful for the influence Lea has had on both my dancing and teaching careers.
