The title of my piece is “Getting There.” The music was composed by me as well. This piece was born in the pandemic when I asked myself the question, “Why can’t I play cello and dance at the same time?” I had trained in both classical dance and classical music my whole life and had always kept them separate, but in the pandemic I decided to find a way to combine the art forms together. After over a year of experimentation this piece has finally come to life.

Leah has worked with a number of dance companies including Clairobscur Dance, Pacific Festival Ballet, Brockus RED, and Mixed eMotion Theatrix, at venues including New York City Center, The Ford Theatres, Warsaw, Poland (Zawirowania Dance Festival), Luckman Fine Arts Complex, and Walt Disney Concert Hall.
