Leeah Calderon Notes and Highlights:

2015-16 XUDT President

Major: Psychology

Dance Background: This is Leeah's third year on the Xavier Dance Team. She was awarded All-American Award at NDA Camp this summer. Leeah began dancing at the Moving Company School of Dance in her hometown at the age of three. There she participated in a variety of dance styles including jazz, tap, ballet, pointe, hip-hop and lyrical. She was on the competition team there for six years, where they competed all over the state of Ohio and traveled to Las Vegas and Myrtle Beach for Nationals. Leeah was a teacher assistant at the studio, where she taught younger dancers the basics of dance. She also helped start her high school's dance team, the Pantherettes, and performed at halftime of basketball games.

XUDT Highlights: Something that I love about XUDT is still having the opportunity to dance. I love to dance and I'm so happy and grateful that I am able to still do it and make friends with others who also love to dance. We are able to create a balance of having fun and working hard throughout the season. The commitment and dedication that everyone gives at practice makes it easier to reach our goals each year. It makes me feel like I have a family in this big community.
