Hi! My name is LeAnna and I am a performing artist and teacher in the San Francisco bay area. I am 29 years old, live in Los Angeles, CA and graduated from San Francisco State University where I received my BA in Classical Music, my BA in Dance, with a focus in choreography, and a minor in Multi-Cultural Theatre. I work as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, Zumba instructor and teacher. I love the work that I do and teaching the performing arts is a great joy in my life.
So, just a little bit about me- My father was a saxophone jazz-playing musician who made music an important part of my life. I began piano when I was 7 years old and basically self-taught until I reached the university where I had some formal training. I fell into singing via theatre in high school and picked up trombone my junior where I played marching band and jazz band (some of the best times of my life!). Studying music at SFSU was very satisfying. Now, I enjoy working as an independent and local performing artist.
For me, the performing arts is one of the greatest expressions of art on the planet. I cherish it in all of its forms ,which is why I have such a strong, well-rounded background in many styles. For music, I trained for 9 years in classical voice while at SFSU and La Universidad de Catolica in Santiago, Chile, but always explored other styles. I sang for two years with the SFSU Gospel Choir and smaller jazz vocal groups, and over three years with the SFSU Afro-Cuban Jazz Ensemble, which is a mix of Latin folkloric music, Salsa and jazz. After I graduated, I had my own jazz quartet, the Happy Ensemble and now focusing on a great passion of mine- musical theatre!
As a teacher, I have been teaching private and group piano and voice music lessons for the past six years. I have taught from my home studio, at Sunset Music Academy, SF, with the Latimerlo Vocal Studio, (throughout east bay) and currently with Barbizon, SF and Saint Ignatius Preparatory, SF during the summer. I have worked with children as young as 5 years to adults in their 60s. I have also worked in after school programs for many years and assisted in designing music, dance and musical theatre programs for children K-8th. Teaching performing arts in very important to me. :)

I am a Musical Theatre Choreographer, Dance Instructor, and Equity Performer. I have my BA in Jazz Dance from Point Park University and am a Certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher. I've choreographed over 20 productions in Seattle including 42nd Street, The Producers, and Chicago at Village Theater and performed in the original company of Disney's Aladdin at the 5th Avenue Theater.
My professional students are currently performing on Broadway and at Regional Theaters across the country, while my pre-professional students have seen great success in their college and local theater auditions.
My private dance lessons are perfect for singers and actors who are interested in taking their natural movement abilities and turning them into true dance technique, students who find group classes and dance auditions intimidating, and for dancers with gaps in their training that want to take their technique to the next level.
Lessons are individually tailored to your goals focusing on technique, strength, flexibility, turns, jumps, and style in ballet, tap, jazz, and theater dance.
