Are you ready to take your dancing to the next level? You'll learn MUCH faster in a private lesson than you ever will in a group class. If you like one on one attention and you want to make sure you "get it", private lessons are for you.

Many of my students progress to intermediate dancer status within just two months of consistent private lessons because I'm able to give them my undivided attention. We nip bad habits right out and get you leading or following like a pro super quick!

Privates in Little Rock are now very affordable at $85/55 minutes. 

**contact me about volume discounts (either more than 1 private booked at a time or more than 1 person taking the private lesson) You can generally save at least $15 per lesson

Leah Patterson has been dancing salsa professionally for over 12 years. In that time, she has become internationally recognized for her smooth and sensual styling and dynamic stage presence. She’s performed and taught all across the world. As a principal dancer of the well-known dance co. Descarga Caribe for many years, she shared her charisma and love for dancing with salsa enthusiasts in China, England, Spain, Italy, Canada, California, Washington DC, Texas, Chicago, and countless other places. 

Her style of dance has often been described as sophisticated, sharp, precise, imaginative, and even spiritual. One of her last performances with Descarga Caribe included the 2006 ESPN Salsa World Championships in which she helped place the team within the top 10 of the world. 

Leah has been privileged to choreograph and perform with many amazing dancers including Sekou McMiller (Chicago), Darlin Garcia (Philadelphia), Del Dominguez (Chicago), Will Pagan (North Carolina), Betto Herrera (North Carolina), and most recently Amanda Cardona (Austin/New York). She also began North Carolina's first all-female dance team, Femme Finesse and expanded that team to include two additional chapters in South Africa and Arkansas. Currently, she teaches in Little Rock, AR and is the founder of Leah's School of Latin Dance. Through LSLD Leah directs various amateur and semi-professional dance teams and teaches beginner to advanced dancers. Dance is her greatest passion and she thoroughly enjoys spreading this love through continuing to teach and perform wherever it takes her.
