Teaching first ballet moves to your littles is Leona Cichy. Leona resides in New York Mills and is the owner of Roots and Wings Yoga in Perham, MN.

Leona began dancing at the age of two and is trained in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and modern, among other styles. She was a member of the competitive Legacy Dance Company in New Jersey for ten years, and has taught dance classes to young children both as an assistant and lead instructor. Leona also has extensive experience in youth development and programming.

After college, Leona found yoga as a way to continue her love of movement in adulthood. Leona is excited to begin offering dance classes to the NYM community!

“The goal of this class is to instill a love of movement and dance for children ages 3-Kindergarten. Young dancers will learn basic ballet movements in a positive and fun environment. Proper technique is taught through creative dances and imagination. These 45-minute structured classes will focus on the basics of gross motor movement including strength, coordination, and flexibility, as well as socialization and group learning. Every class will be a dance adventure of music and movement!”
