LA Dance Academy is teaming up with The Community Outreach Team to help educate our elementary students in St. Tammany Parish Public and Charter Schools about the effects on bulling! This is something I am passionate about and would like to see bullying come to a STOP! We can all make a difference.

 Gossiping/bulling is PROHIBITED at LA Dance Academy and can cause an immediate dismissal from the Academy!

If you feel you are being bullied reach out to a parent, teacher, coach, or someone you trust
