Dance Filthy USA 2023 will consist of two rounds: Video Submission Entry, and Final Round.
Leah Franklin (2019 DFUSA Pro Champ)
Leah began her dancing journey when she was 12 years old, taking a hip hop class that eventually led into many other styles of dance. You could say she was hooked on performance and movement from the get go. Leah dabbled in theater and cheerleading throughout her youth, and went on to major in dance at Stephens College. Leah had dreams of becoming a freelance choreographer, but that didn’t end up satisfying her wants and needs. Looking for a new outlet, she discovered pole dancing and quickly fell head-over-heels for the craft. Leah has been pole dancing for 8 years now, teaching at Muse Pole Fitness for 7, and dancing as an “erotic dancer”/”stripper” or whatever wording you choose for 6 years. She has competed and performed worldwide for years, and carries titles including World Erotic Pole Champion, Pole Theatre Canada Classique Champion, and of course Dance Filthy USA Champion. One of her favorite achievements is getting to co-produce and choreograph the professionally sexy show, Vertical Desires. She is so excited to be joining the Dance Filthy stage once again after what everyone can agree was an exhausting year.
