• About H&A International

    The mission of H&A International Dance is to provide ballroom dance students with the tools they need to reach their dancing goals, whether social or competitive.

    H&A International Dance initiated from a desire to bring competitive and social ballroom dancing home, to the Northshore. For over 5 years, Randy Hallner has taught students in New Orleans, Houma, and Metairie. After forming a competitive partnership with recent Oxford M.B.A. graduate, Caitlin Andersen, Randy decided it was time to centralize and begin to build a studio that would reflect the dedication, care, and hard work he puts into dancing every day.

    Founded in July 2016, H&A International Dance is quickly becoming the ballroom dance studio for students of all ages to learn and improve their dancing.
