With a passion for ballet deeply ingrained since her early years at the Giacobbe Academy of Dance in New Orleans,

the confines of classical ballet. As a testament to her commitment to the longevity of her students’ careers, Lisa
imparts more than just steps – she shares a philosophy. “My goal for you in class is to have the longest career you
can possibly have. I’m not here to create ballerinas; that’s not my job. I want you to be as strong and dance as long as
you possibly can.”
