PERFORMANCE: Leigh Purtill presents Zombie Ballet: Leigh Purtill is a ballet instructor, choreographer and coach in the Los Angeles area. She is also a published novelist with a Master’s degree in Film Production from Boston University.
Zombies are Leigh’s passion so it was only natural that she would try to put “ballet” and “the undead” together. She has been developing a full-length story ballet called “Sweet Sorrow” that is a sequel to Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and takes place after the main characters die. “Zombie ballet” is a brief glimpse into that ballet. All of Leigh’s dancers are her students and they all share the same love of zombies and unconventional approach to ballet.
