Leah Ficarola is a Southern California native. She started off as a classical ballet dancer studying with the San Francisco and Pacific Northwest Ballet school. She then moved to NYC to dance with Eliot Felds' Ballet Tech. It wasn't until she moved to Los Angeles and met "The Man in the Black Hat", Toledo Diamond, that her love for burlesque and cabaret grew. Since then she's been dancing with numerous burlesque and cabaret shows as well as gracing the stage with live rock bands. Leah has shaken her stuff onstage live with Van Halen for their press release show for their "Different Kind of Truth" tour, and has even put her pointe shoes back on for The Used "Hands and Faces" music video. Now performing with the Hells Belles Leah gets to explore the best of both worlds combined rock and burlesque….so watch out, this lady is seriously rockin’!
