The concept of sharing the opportunity to dance in a safe and fun environment  struck a cord with Leona and it is an ideology that she continues to pass on through her peers, students and the troupe Y Bellydance.  When Leona does not have her hand in putting together events, you will find she is in high demand to be a part of other events. Leona is the co-director of Eastside Hips Productions.
