L-LIVEOAK_Queen_0834Welcome to Live Oak Dance!

Founded by professional ballerina Jarina Carvalho, Live Oak Dance offers professional quality ballet instruction in a flexible, friendly environment. Live Oak Dance is the answer to methods that require inflexible commitment or low quality training.

Our classes offer a fresh approach to ballet and classical dance training  in the New Orleans area for all ages and levels. The Pre-Professional and Open Adult classes are based in the neoclassical Balanchine style, recognized as the most innovative  method of ballet today. Youth Program classes are pre-ballet format with emphasis on creative movement, motor skills development and fun!

Contact us anytime for registration or questions, and we look forward to seeing you in the studio!


We are participating in the July Jubilee! Open classes during the weeks of July 25 and August 1 will cost only $5.
