Leigh Harwood is the Development Coordinator at Dancing Grounds, working in fundraising, event planning, social media, and other development aspects. Originally from Washington DC, she began her dance career with Joy of Motion Dance Center where she studied with their youth Hip Hop dance company Urban Impact. Leigh moved to New Orleans in 2011 where she studied at Tulane University, receiving her B.S. in Psychology in 2015. Leigh began her involvement with Dancing Grounds in July 2014 as an adult student, then receptionist, intern, and became a staff member in May 2015. She is thrilled to be a part of the Dancing Grounds family, which quickly filled the void for a dance home that had been missing since coming to New Orleans. Outside of development work Leigh also helps manage the adult studio and dances with DG’s resident hip hop company BUKU Dance Krewe.
