Leslie Hansen

Leslie is a Group Fitness Instructor. I have been a High Fitness instructor since the program started and I am a High Fitness Guru with the responsibility of trainings, choreography, and mentoring other instructors. I love the amazing community of High Fitness and the friends I have made teaching at Skills Fitness.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Utah and I have over 30 years of dance experience in all genres. I trained in Los Angeles and New York for two summers and I continue to attend conventions and classes to grow as an instructor. I have been teaching dance for over 20 years and was the coach for the Bountiful Mandonelles for six years during which time they took several Region Championships and the State Championship in 2002-03.

I have been a UHSAA Judge for almost 20 years and have choreographed many award-winning routines for drill teams and dance teams across the State, as well as for large performances such as the Hawaii Pro Bowl. I started the Jazz Program at Creative Arts Academy in 2006 and have been heavily involved in the growth of that program. I am co-director of the Premiere Performing Company. I am also an English teacher at Bountiful High School and enjoy helping my students learn.

In my “spare” time I love movies, shopping, cooking, and reading as much as I can! I am a proud mother of 4 amazing boys and I also have an awesome supportive husband whom I adore and who loves to come to the gym with me each morning. I love attending my boys’ sporting events, going on vacation, and having fun together as a family!
