email@example.com Lauran Clowser, artistic director of Potomac Classical Youth Ballet, remembers Justin Leaf coming to a summer workshop she held years ago at Hagerstown Community College. He was 13 years old. "That boy could leap, and he could hang in the air," Clowser said. She asked the teen if he'd be interested in taking ballet lessons. He said yes, and he did - three days a week. "He was willing to work," she said. Leaf graduated from Clowser's City Ballet School five years later, and continued his training at Goucher College and Pacific Northwest Ballet School.
