While attending the University of New Mexico and late University of Nevada Las Vegas he continued guest teaching in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada. In 2009 Leo opened Switch Performing Arts which has continually had a reputation for high quality, instruction, cutting edge faculty, and unique performances. He has choreographed for Bud Light during the “House of Whatever” 2015 Super Bowl promotional event with artists including Nicki Minaj, Diplo, and Steve Aoki as well as for FOX TV Phoenix, the Arizona Sundogs Dance Team and more. Leo instructs at numerous studios around the valley and enjoys bringing his style of teaching to eager and hard working students.
