Leah Tilney / Flix
Leah (aka b-girl flix) has been known for the past 15 years as a professional dancer, choreographer, actor and performer, touring extensively nationally and internationally for a number of high profile dance, TV, film and theatre companies.
After returning from tour to Brisbane in 2010 she opened her own creative space; ELEMENTS COLLECTIVE with the mission to authentically represent hip-hop culture in Brisbane. Since it’s humble beginnings, Elements Collective has now become one of Australia’s leading hip-hop dance companies and produces workshops and events for clients all over the world.
As one of the few representing b-girls in Australia, Leah has always been determined to push the limits of hip-hop dance culture, which was once very male dominated.
she has won countless national and international B-girl Battles including the 2012 & 2016 Battle of the Year qualifier in Sydney & Nz and went on to represent Australia at the World Finals both in Germany & then France.
In 2014, Leah took the brave step to rebrand her studios in Fortitude Valley into CUPO, so she could focus on producing events and touring with Elements Collective and keep the studio space a separate business. Signing a business partner; Trent Wildman, a creative space & events venue was born.
When Leah is not running elements collective and cupo venue, she works as a freelance creative producer.
She has worked closely with the brisbane heat (cricket team) for the past 8 years and suncorp (supernetball) as a casting & entertainment coordinator and throughout 2017-2018 she worked as Cast Coordinator for the GC2018 Commonwealth Games Opening & Closing Ceremonies.
Currently Leah works as Associate Producer for Brisbane Festival and is Artistic Director for concrete culture at H.O.T.A (Home of the Arts, Gold Coast).
