Maya de Leon
Maya de Leon's love for dance began in her hometown of Lansing, Michigan. Throughout her training, she received scholarships through Regional Dance America to many summer intensives including the National Choreography Intensive, Colorado Conservatory of Dance, and Alma College Summer Dance. In 2014, she was selected to perform at the International Ballet Competition in Jackson, Mississippi. Maya graduated Summa Cum Laude from Point Park University in 2019 where she has the pleasure of being cast in pieces by Jae Man Joo, Helen Simoneau, Jay Kirk, Edwaard Liang, and Matthew Powell among others. While in college, she began her professional career with Third Coast Dance Company under the direction of Kristen Bennett and Lynn Bowman. This is Maya's first season with BQC and she is elated to join a company with such an inspiring mission!
