Dance Teacher

Leeann Rackleff

Leeann Rackleff began dancing at the age of 6 and loved ballet from the very beginning. She danced through her teen years and into college taking classical ballet, contemporary, and lyrical. She thoroughly enjoyed performing, dancing on pointe, and taking master classes from the Joffrey Ballet. Leeann graduated from Southern Virginia University in 2006 with degrees in nursing and early childhood education.

Dance was put on hold for a while after college while Leeann’s family grew. She married Paul Rackleff and became the mother of three beautiful children.

Since then, Leeann has been back to her first love, ballet! She began assisting Miss Natasha with her classes in 2014, and began teaching her own classes in the fall of 2015. Preferring to teach the littlest Weehawken dancers, Leeann teaches pre and primary ballet and Hip Hop at Weehawken Dance in Montrose. In 2019 Miss Leeann became Rhythm Works Integrative Dance certified, and enjoys turning dance into a therapy modality in classes for children with specials needs and individual learning differences.
