LeAnne Musick:  LeAnne followed her passion for dance since childhood. In middle school & high school, she danced with teams. Starting at 15 years old, LeAnne kept a journal of her hopes, dreams & aspirations.

Nurturing hopes of dancing professionally, she made it through rounds of being a dancer with Beyoncé’s live tour before deciding that becoming the best parent that she could be to her young daughter was most important.

LeAnne earnestly pursued her dream of starting a dance studios that would be a safe haven and creative outlet for children.  In 2008, that dream became reality with the opening of Musick Studios at 411 East 2nd Street in Owensboro KY.  Starting with 75 dancers during the first season, the studio has grown to a roster of 500 for 2016-2017 dance season.

LeAnne continues to place God, family and children before herself.  This formula fuels her aspirations and success.

Three years after he started dancing, he decided to move to South Korea to teach English at an academy and devoted the rest of his time to dancing in a nation that has risen in fame through their constant hard work. Throughout his journey,  he  had opportunities to learn from some originators and pioneers of Hip-Hop dance, such as: Ken Swift, Mr. Wiggles, Scoo B Doo, Link, and Bboy Erik. Justin also has learned from today’s more famous crews and studios like: Kinjaz, I.aM.mE, Movement Lifestyle, 1Million, Criminalz, and Jabbawockeez. Among all the workshops, battles, and gigs that Justin was blessed being a part of, his favorite thing is community outreach and guiding young leaders of the next generation. Besides being a part of Musick Studios, he is a member of Step X Step Dance, a company that broadcasts and celebrates dance scenes all over the world; he is still rooted with his crew Soul Squad, which started in Tucson, Arizona.
