About Leah Bueno

"It is my deepest pleasure to be able to help people find the potential of the human body. I have seen dancers achieve amazing things when applying correct bio-mechanics to their dance training. The rigorous physical demands of dance can expose dancers to unique injuries and incorrect bio-mechanics. However, if done properly dancers can manage these ailments, prevent further injuries and vastly improve technique."

Leah Bueno danced professionally with the Sacramento Ballet, Inland Pacific Ballet, Don Arden's Jubilee and was a principal dancer for The Napoles Ballet. For the last 18 years has taught ballet for The Sacramento Ballet School, Company teacher for Don Arden's Jubilee, and was resident Ballet Mistress at Northern California Dance Conservatory.

 

She currently works with professional and pre-professional dancers for Injury Prevention, Post-Rehabilitation and Pilates therapies. Leah is a fully certified Pilates Instructor, holding specialty certifications in Injuries and Special Populations and Fascial Movment through STOTT PILATES®. Currently she is in the process of receiving an advanced certification in Dance Injuries. Her clientele includes professional dancers from the Sacramento Ballet, Los Angeles Ballet, Washington Ballet, Suzanne Farrell Ballet and Ballet Next, as well as many Pre-Professional Dancers.

"Leah's knowledge of the body and it's relation to dance is unparalleled As my daughter incorporated Pilates into her training routine she was able to strengthen her core and musculature which has lead to improvement in her quality of movement. Her personal training with Leah has been critical to her success in the studio."
