With Leandra

Wednesdays 3:30 - 4:30


I started dancing ballet in New York in 1988, so I've been dancing for 40 years. I was a teachers aid starting at 12, so I've been teaching dance and working with children for 36 years. (Whoa, that makes me feel seasoned!) I danced in NY doing tap, jazz, ballet and hip hop. I started my own company called Dance Discovery in 1999 teaching in preschools. Most recently I was the lead Ballet teacher for advanced students at Kinetics here in Chico up until the twins were born.

We are a group of artists, teachers, dancers and healers. We have established our group, Movement Arts of Chico as a non-profit organization in January of 2022. All of our endeavors at the MA go directly into maintaining and running our beautiful downtown location. Our mission is simple: to support the growing arts culture in Chico. We do this by organizing art shows, music, film and dance events and hosting a variety of classes. We aim to create greater accessibility of the arts, especially or youth in our community.
