Leigh Harwood

Leigh Harwood is the Development and Marketing Coordinator at Dancing Grounds. Originally from Washington D.C., she began her dance career with Joy of Motion Dance Center where she was a member of the youth Hip Hop company Urban Impact. Leigh moved to New Orleans in 2011 to attend Tulane University where she received her B.S in Psychology (2015). Leigh first became involved with Dancing Grounds in July 2014 as an adult student-turned-receptionist, then intern (Assistant Development Coordinator). Leigh became a full-time staff member upon graduation in May 2015 and subsequently took on her additional role as Marketing Coordinator. She is thrilled to be a part of the Dancing Grounds family, which quickly filled the void for a dance community that had been missing since coming to New Orleans. Outside of her development and marketing work, Leigh is passionate about combating social and racial injustice through participation with local groups groups such as Step Up Louisiana and European Dissent.
