About Leslie Panitchpakdi

Leslie began dancing in 2005 with Culture Shock Oakland and was a part of the creation of Groove Against the Machine where she is the co-coordinator and choreographer. She is also co-owner of In The Groove studios in Oakland. Review from Elaine Adolfo, the ultimate hip hop student: "The first time I took class with Leslie was back in 2013 and honestly I was not prepared for the awesomeness that hits you when you’re in her class. When you meet her in her civilian pose, she’s warm and inviting and she has this gorgeous smile that makes you gravitate towards her. But damn when she turns on the dance MODE, she transforms into this powerful, gritty, somewhat intimidating beast and IT’S FANTASTIC. I’m not kidding when she’s in normal human mode everything is fine and sweet and calm and when the switch is triggered for dance goddess, DAMN. It is on. So her class is hard. It just is. Her moves are very intricate and specific, but they’re full of drama and hair whips which I adore. It was difficult in 2013 and with each year I take class with her it gets easier…a little bit. Her class challenges me alot and that’s why I love her." https://elaine.la/2019/01/where-to-learn-hip-hop-dancing-in-the-bay-area-2019/
