Our studio was founded by Lelia Haller in 1928. After studying in Paris, Ms. Haller returned to Louisiana to begin her life long work as a teacher of the fine art of dance. The combined techniques of the French, Italian, Russian and Spanish dance styles influenced the unique development of Lelia Haller, the complete ballerina. Continuing her teaching style today, the current owners, Jennifer Hazelwood and Shannon Rodriguez, have remained true to the art of dance through the eyes of such a legend.
"She has enjoyed the classes, learned a lot and always wants to return. She was particularly taken and enthusiastic about The Nutcracker performance."
"I love how your recitals are low stress for moms compared to other dance schools. Teachers give good positive reinforcement."
" L.H. Ballet is an amazing school. It’s one of a kind in that it offers top-notch instruction, as well as reasonable amount of commitment for each family."
