  WHO WE ARE 

MEET THE FOUNDER

saveenha dotzler

Hello, my name is Saveenha!

I am the founder and owner of Leona’s Dance Company. If you’re wondering how the company got its name, my full name is Saveenha Leona Dotzler.

I come from a family of fourteen and I am number eleven. With such a big family, I found dancing helped me find my voice. It not only became a passion but who I am.

By the time I entered high school I knew what I wanted to do, work with children, youth, and families through the art of dance. Not until I started college and began meeting with my mentor, Jean Lanphier, did I realized that starting my own dance company could come sooner than I thought. Jean is not only my mentor but was my dance instructor for ten years.

 

After graduating high school, Jean gave me the opportunity of a life time; my dream job as the lead Hip-Hop Choreographer at her studio, Jean Lanphier’s Dance Studio. My dance experience starts at Jean’s being the hip-hop choreographer for 5 years also choreographer for another studio – Bloom Dance Studio- for 3 years. Lastly, I direct concept music videos for THE CREW, a group of professional dancers raised out of Leona’s Dance Company.

Thank you to family and friends that have encouraged me to pursue my dreams.

I am excited for the new season to kick off!

Hope to see you soon!
– Sav
