Artistic Staff


Leslie Murphy graduated from Webster University in 2010 with a BFA in dance and departmental honors.  She also trained at ADF in North Carolina during their summer intensive.  While at ADF she was selected to perform with Janis Brenner and Dancers for the Hollins University MFA Showcase.

Following graduation, Ms. Leslie performed for ACDFA in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center.  Additionally, Ms. Leslie’s performance credits include Diva La Tap and En L’Air Aerial Dance Company under the umbrella of ANNONYArts.

In 2015, Ms. Leslie formed Formations Dance Center, focusing on her love of the aerial arts and dance.  In 2022, she handed over FDC to Ashley Claybrook, yet is honored and excited to continue to work for Miss Ashley at FDC and now DPU as the head of the aerial programs.

If you don’t see Ms. Leslie flipping upside-down at FDC or DPU, you’ll find her in the office at DPU!
