As faculty member in UCLA’s Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance, her teaching areas included: improvisation, choreography, movement analysis, fundamentals and modern dance technique, dance education, creative dance for children, and production management/administration. Leung was an independent choreographer/dancer as well as one of the founders of Chopsticks & Sneakers, a collective of Asian and Asian-American choreographers, which had produced concerts since 1984. She has taught as guest artist wherever her works have been presented throughout the United States and internationally. Leung’s teaching and creative work reflects her primary interest in praxis - in creating bridges between intuition and the analytical, the theoretical and the practical, the conceptual and the physical. She has served in numerous capacities in administrative roles and advisement for the department and School throughout her tenure, including a final stint as departmental Chair from 2006 to 2015. She has served on the faculty advisory board of the School's Visual and Performing Arts Education (VAPAE) minor program since 2010 and continues to do so (Faculty Chair 2010-2014, 2016-current). Though recently retired, Leung has continued to serve (since 2013) on the UCLA Healthy Campus Initiative (HCI) Steering Committee as co-chair of the Move Well Pod. Current projects include developing and promoting research and interventions for undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and faculty making “healthy choices as the easy choice” through programs engaged in awareness, activism, and action.
