Leah Vendl: Partner Dance Teacher & DJ

Teaching Dance

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 an improviser, dance adventurer, and organizing member of Recess Productions who has taught at blues and alt-blues events across the US, in the UK and France. Leah uses she/her/hers pronouns. She has been partner dancing for a decade and believes social dance can empower a diversity of voices and bodies. She teaches a role-fluid, consent-focused dance practice. 
Leah has experience in contemporary dance, improvisation and solo movement. Contact her about teaching blues dancing, role-fluid dance classes, in small groups, or in workshop settings.



Leah's sets are a deep celebration of SELF. Get on the dance floor, express who you truly are, and settle into the deepest groove your body can find.

Leah started DJing for Seattle & Tacoma house parties around 2010 and has since DJ'd at blues and alt-blues events across the US, in Paris, London, and Spain. She particularly loves taking the alt-blues room for a ride, transporting dancers from a funky polyrhythmic party to tender acoustic moments. Her sets have been described as liquid, chewy and gosh-darn luscious. You'll know the party's really going if everyone's getting downand so is she, doing the worm. 

Private Lessons

Leah has so much to impart for both traditional and alt-blues. Numerous tips and techniques, great body awareness—she created and warm and friendly environment in which to learn.
