graduating high school I married and had four children. During that time while my children were young I
began working with the youth in the dance and drama department at our local church. As
the years went by I realized I had a God given ability to work with students of all ages. As
my children grew I looked for other opportunities to grow my skills. Along with the work I’ve accomplished with Communities
In Schools, I have been blessed to be able to work with several hundred students during a month long enrichment program
held each year during the month of June.
I’ve enjoyed working with the Starkville High Theatre department where
I Create silk billows, overlays, garments, ribbons, flags and much more. Dance has always played a major role in my life as an artist.
of 2007 I began creating hand made silks for Church dance teams and individuals for use in praise dance. . The
bulk of my work is with Christian groups that use them in dance celebrations.
Each week I routinely go to a studio
and practice the art of "flag dance". I enjoy being able to share this part with others also.
In all, I couldn’t dream of doing anything else. Charlotte Jean Todd Leonard
