"Providing students of all ages with the education, inspiration, and motivation conducive to a lifetime appreciation for the performing arts since 1978."

Business Description

Wanda Cullen, Assistant Director and Director Emeritus of the Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts had a mission back in 1978 to help students of all ages learn the love of music through piano lessons and piano instruction.

Since that time so many years ago, the academy has evolved from a piano school in the back of Wanda's home in New Orleans to Louisiana's premier, private academy of music, dance and the performing arts.

Our music and dance faculty are hand picked by the school directors from the many hundreds of applicants that we receive annually. Great care is taken to select candidates who are not only incredible performers and excellent all around musicians, but also outstanding educators who are able to break down key concepts in numerous ways. As each student is unique in his or her learning process, this ensures that our music and dance faculty are able to have at least one way of communicating these concepts to the individual student that will be easily understood.

We also offer preschool programs, rock pop and jazz band ensembles.

Our dance program offers instruction for all ages in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, creative movement, parent & tot as well as Zumba classes. We are the only dance program in New Orleans to additionally offer private coaching and choreographing for your upcoming wedding or special event!
