Emily Meola

Teacher, Choreographer 

Emily Meola found her love of dance at the age of 5, starting out in ballet and quickly expanded into jazz, lyrical, tap, contemporary, hip hop, etc. Emily grew up in the competition world, winning multiple titles, special awards, overall scores, and scholarships, and easily transitioned into a professional dance career.

While she is still very young as a choreographer, her work has already been seen on many competition stages, as well as fundraising and community events in cities surrounding her hometown of Lancaster, PA, and professional stages, such as American Music Theatre. For her choreography, she has received multiple special judges awards, high scores, and outstanding choreography awards.

Performance credits include: Elf The Musical (Fulton Theatre), Dance Explosion (American Music Theatre), Philly Nutt Crak-Up (Keswick Theatre), Beyond Genesis (Mélange Contemporary Dance Company), I Want My MTV: The Sound of a Generation (Steel River Playhouse), Sparks the Stage (ContempraDance Theatre). She studied at Broadway Dance Center in the summer of 2015 as part of their Summer Professional Semester, where she had the chance to perform at the Symphony Space in Manhattan.

Whether performing, teaching, or choreographing, Emily loves to get herself into everything she can in the dance world. She strongly believes in the art and storytelling, and tries to push herself and her students to find those strange and odd places that make dance so incredible and special.

Leigh Laseter 

Ballet Teacher, Choreographer 

Leigh Grant is a ballet dancer and coach from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, training in ballet and pointe for
over thirty years. She is a member of the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science, and
will assist the adjunct ethics committee in consultations and mediations on a case-by-case basis.
Leigh’s philosophy is that everyone wanting to learn ballet should have access to high-quality technical
and artistic training that puts the health and safety of the dancer first, while concurrently promoting fun
and enjoyment of the art form. She also believes ballet is for everyone and every body, endeavoring to
make ballet accessible to anyone wishing to study. In 2019, Leigh attended the American Ballet Theatre
(ABT) National Training Curriculum Teacher Training Intensive in New York City. She is continuously
learning and growing as both a dancer and dance educator. She is a graduate of the University of
Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA, receiving her B.A. in Philosophy and Theater in 2014. Her studies at
UPenn also included a pre-medical course track.
Ms. Grant actively continues her own ballet training, taking lessons with School of Pennsylvania Ballet
(Philadelphia, PA) and Pennsylvania Ballet Academy (Camp Hill, PA) adult programs (classes, workshops,
intensives). In 2020, through Pennsylvania Ballet’s Community Engagement Program, she gained the
opportunity to perform with Bill T. Jones and members of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company (New
York City) in their Philadelphia performance of Deep Blue Sea, unfortunately postponed due to the
pandemic. In 2018, she trained at the artÉmotion Adult Summer Intensive at Ballet West in Salt Lake
City, Utah. There, she received professional training from artÉmotion Artistic Directors, Ballet West
dancers, and stars of the CW’s Breaking Pointe show, Allison Debona and Rex Tilton. Additionally, she
received daily lessons in ballet, pointe, contemporary, and jazz from Ballet West dancers Adrian Fry,
Jenna Herrera and more. The intensive culminated in a workshop performance in an original piece
choreographed by Raymond Tilton, dancer with Diablo Ballet and former corps member of the San
Francisco Ballet.
As a pre-professional student, Leigh trained locally with Chet Zercher at Dancer’s Workshop and with
Carolyn Trythall and Viktor Yeliohin at Lancaster School of Ballet, and with Kathleen Megnin at Laurel
Ballet. She has trained in various ballet techniques including Vaganova, Cecchetti and American. While
with Laurel Ballet, she performed the role of Clara in The Nutcracker, alongside Pennsylvania Ballet
Guest Artists Alexei Borovik and Dalia Hay. With Lancaster School of Ballet, she performed alongside
members of The Donetsk Ballet (Ukraine) as a Snowflake in their production of The Nutcracker. By
invitation, she attended master classes with Franco DeVita and Raymond Lukens, as well as with Marcia
Dale Weary at Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. She also trained with Finish Jhung, Cynthia Vallone,
and Madame Gabriella Darvash at the Broadway Dance Center in New York City.
Leigh is thrilled to be joining the artistic faculty of Dance Dynamix, and looks forward to sharing her
knowledge, love and passion for ballet with all.
