75+ Years of Excellence

Carrying on the Tradition of Excellence in Dance Education

Pembo Cieutat was founded in 1942 by Mrs. Emma Pembo Cieutat, opening first in New Orleans, then in Metairie in the 80s and later expanding to the North shore. Educating students in the proper technique of Tap, Jazz, Ballet and Acrobats was her passion.
It has been the great honor of Kim Speziale and her very talented staff, some of which were also Mrs. Emma disciples, to carry on the tradition of excellence started by Mrs. Emma by sharing her passion and knowledge through the evolution of dance education.
