Today, the Louisiana Academy of Performing Arts oversees music lessons and dance classes at three campuses and has headquarters located in Harahan and Mandeville, LA."

Gianna is 3.5 she is in the Mommy and me class. Her teacher is Miss Savanah. I love this class because it welcomes grandmothers too! Miss Savanah is a good instructor because she gives these little ones enough freedom to be themselves while getting them to learn. We love it!!
My daughter has been attending laapa for 6 months for singing and it has been wonderful. We recently increased our times from 30 mins to the 45 mins and are very pleased. All of the staff is very helpful and works great with the students.
Jaycee has been taking voice lessons with Mrs. Katarina for about four months. She was a little shy at first but she is improving with every lesson. Mrs. Katarina makes it fun for Jaycee but also teaches her theory as well.
