Leah Russell is a performing artist with a BFA in theater from Cornish College of the Arts. She started her journey acting in plays and short films though her love for highly physical roles eventually led her to pursue dance. With her previous movement background, she dove into training in a variety of movement styles including contemporary, modern, ballet, hip hop, capoeira, tai chi and boxing. She has had the pleasure of appearing in works by Beth Terwilleger, Vladimir Kremenovic, Leslie Kraus, Stephanie Liapis, Emily Curtiss, Maya Soto, Melissa Riker, Margarita Bali, Peter Kohring and is a dancer with Khambatta Dance Company. This is Leah's first year with DCD!
