As Film Actor, MC, Comedian
"Taking Leslie's acting workshop was an absolute blast. She manages to make it incredibly fun while making it a very comfortable environment to let loose and learn new skills.
As an actress Leslie is that rare combination - she has both the most wonderful comedic timing and a strong dramatic ability.
I love going to any show where Leslie is the emcee. She is hilarious and her upbeat energy is contagious."

As MC & Film Actor
"Leslie keeps shows apace and handles the unexpected with aplomb while the audience secretly wishes she’ll stay on stage longer! A short film on Domestic Violence highlights her versatility as an actress. She truly shined as a battered wife who paradoxically reels from blows yet defends her husband’s honor to their children. "
Dr. Jill Butler
"I can't say enough about how fantastic Leslie Ruder was as the Emcee at our Summer Women's Concert. She exuded modest confidence and warmth and established rapport with our ladies right from the start. She was able to think on her feet and keep the audience's attention when there were technical difficulties backstage, and she even sang for us and captured our hearts with her stunning musical talents. With both poise and humor, Leslie was the glue that connected all of our various performers and truly helped to make our event the success that it was."

As MC & Improv Workshop
"Leslie's improv workshops are infectious...and it's never been such a pleasure to become infected! You laugh, you bond with others, you're challenged, and you learn more deeply how you and others tick. Even people hesitant to participate are tickled and intrigued, and before too long they too let go and jump in to the action! You walk away from Leslie's workshops feeling lighter, more connected, and feeling like you had a real a real experience."

Leslie's Acting Workshops
"I took Leslie’s acting class several years ago. It was so much fun. All the women there were so talented and creative and funny. Leslie taught us how to channel our energy and be more clear and expressive about our persona. She helped us step out of our inhibitions and shyness. Besides enjoying the class, I made a new friendship. Go for it, you have nothing to lose, and only what to gain."

As MC, Performer, Teacher
Leslie is one of the most charismatic, personable, and talented people I know! I had her MC for one of my CD release concerts because she can make any audience have a great time with her bright personality and hysterical sense of humor! She ALSO has a beautiful singing voice and is so theatrical. Anyone would gain from having her as an MC or acting teacher!
As MC, Performer, Acting Workshops
"You can ALWAYS count on Leslie to come through on stage! Whether it be a hilarious monologue or gracefully connecting numbers in a show, Leslie is teaming with talent! She spontaneously invents just the right lines to keep her audience engaged while she masterfully weaves her many talents whenever needed. Her vocals are just as impressive as her theatrics and she's a true professional on and off stage. I highly recommend Leslie as an MC, comedian, vocalist and last but not least, a seasoned actress."
