Working with Leah is the best. We hired her to do a staff training and the team raved about it. She gives all kinds of verbal and nonverbal cues throughout the class, as well as both easy and advanced move modifications so that students can tailor the workout to their level. She believes workouts should only be done if they're fun and she brings the fun! Her class is guaranteed to give you an amazing, high-energy workout. She even dressed according to our 80s theme and did an excellent job at picking music that we loved. She also did a great job at adjusting her teaching for a group of about 20. I could not more highly recommend Leah!

Leah is a tremendous instructor! Her class was my first introduction to Zumba and I could not have asked for a better instructor. She is high energy, motivational and patient. Leah is particularly adept at teaching to all skill levels simultaneously. Her classes are so fun that you hardly realize how much actual work you're doing. I would absolutely recommend her without reservation.

So I took my first ever Zumba class with the lovely Leah and it was everything I hoped for and more. Leah has a very fun and energetic personality and I think that is what really got me through my first Zumba class. **Also, should be noted that the songs Leah picked out were all very upbeat (because duh it's Zumba) but in particular her selection of songs were "so choice" it really made the class go by fast! If you want an awesome workout or just need a little dose of sunshine Leah is your instructor!

Leah is an enthusiastic instructor who always has a smile on her face and wants everyone in her class to have fun. Her upbeat personality and rhythm make her classes more of a dance party than a workout. She represents everything a Zumba instructor should be and designs her classes for all levels and abilities. Everytime I take Leah’s class, I leave feeling happy, energized and ready to conquer the world!

I've never taken a Zumba class and Leah's being my first is definitely a great high-powered introduction. You can feel her excitement and passion for moving and dancing. I felt welcomed and stress-free during her class. After a really long day at work, it's easy to feel energized and refreshed by following her steps and modifying where I can. After the workout, I shared with Leah which track I felt most excited about and she even e-mailed me afterward with that song. Definitely recommend!

Leah is a fantastic, high-energy teacher. Her classes provide a great workout and are always a ton of fun. Leah was great at accommodating various capability levels during her class. I would consider myself an intermediate level dancer and I felt adequately challenged and the moves were not too over-my-head. And she picks excellent music!
