Leia Hamilton is from Greenville, SC. She has danced all her life but began her serious Ballet and Modern Dance training at the Fine Arts Center under Andrew Kuharsky in 1996. Leia graduated with a B.A. in Dance Education from Columbia College in 2002. While teaching dance education in Goose Creek, she received her Yoga Certification from Gaea Yoga Studio in Charleston in 2003. Leia wanted to pursue her dream of dancing professionally so she moved to Denver, CO and later to San Francisco, CA in which she danced with various Modern Dance Companies. Leia received her Pilates certification in Berkley, CA at Synergy Fitness in 2005. While teaching Pilates out west, she has had the pleasure of attending workshops led by Michelle Larson, Cara Reeser and Madeline Black. Her love for movement and the rehabilitative power of Pilates lead her to continue her teaching at various studios in Darien and Westport, CT from 2009-2016. Leia recently moved to the Isle of Palms in August 2016 with her husband and three children.
