Leticia Wade is a born and raised Alaskan who has been dancing since she was a little girl, learning the moves from her parents who were dancers themselves. She began her training at age 8 in jazz, ballet, and hip-hop with the Sunshine generation, performing with Disney and continued her training throughout her adolescence with Bartlett Dance and STARS Dance Studio. Wade pursued a minor in dance through UAA broadening her horizon by studying contemporary and modern techniques and performed with the Underground Dance Company (UDC), "Hardcore" from 2004-2007 and their 2013/14 season. Wade has competed both locally and nationally with Bartlett Cheer and Hardcore company winning state and national titles. She was also invited to perform in a National Dance Collective in California, working with award winning choreographer Shane Sparks from So You Think You Can Dance, and Americas Best Dance Crew.
