Teaching

"Leah put me at ease while building confidence in my own abilities. She's a beautiful dancer and a compassionate teacher." 

— Gayle Podrabsky, Seattle

Leah Vendl is a Seattle-based improviser and dance adventurer. She has taught at blues and fusion dance events across the US, in the UK, Italy and in France. She has been dancing since she had someone to dance with, but fell in love with social partner dancing  10 years ago by way of Lindy hop, salsa dancing, and tango.  Her movement story is enriched by contemporary dance, improvisation and solo movement practices. Leah believes social dance can fundamentally change our relationships to music and to each other. She teaches a role-fluid, consent-focused dance practice.
