Leah, a Birmingham, AL native, studied dance at the Alabama School of Fine Arts and the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa. Leah’s enthusiasm and enjoyment for fitness started at a young age when she would run and play basketball with her dad. Fitness and healthy living are an integral part of her career longevity as a dancer, arts educator, and choreographer. Leah is thrilled to share her passion for fitness to instill healthy living through high-energy classes with positive reinforcement and motivational idioms with the clients and staff of Uplift Studios.
What Uplifts her?Building a community of like-minded people to motivate, challenge, and inspire each other. Uplift Studios is an open, nurturing environment where women can nourish their minds, bodies, and spirits to conquer their day and encourage the community around them.
Her guilty pleasure? Soul Food (mom’s homemade mac & cheese, collard greens cooked in turkey drumsticks, cornbread, and red velvet cake) and Sex & the City (I own all six seasons and both movies).
