Premised on the phenomenal work of my mentor, Eileen Landay and the ArtsLit movement, my performance classes are an exploration of artistic source materials (poems, songs, fables) through the use of movement, moment work and voice work. Children and adults alike learn to collaboratively build a performance piece reflecting their reality, their interests and their natural gifts. Each session ends with a performance generated from our time together, a reflection of the unique community that was built during that time. Students develop skills in speech and voice, text analysis, movement, scene-work, improvisation, staging and, most importantly, creative ensemble.

"Leah really takes her time to connect with the people/kids in her class, and she makes sure that they are always feeling happy with what they're doing. She's always energetic. One thing I will always remember from her classes are the dance offs, where she blasts music and pumps up the energy in the room by encouraging everyone to dance. Leah is a wonderful teacher and person. I am honoured to have worked with her."
