A true New Orleanian, the roots of Angie Mazerat’s love of the stage started at a very early age;
performing with the New Orleans Youth Ballet and the Giacobbe Academy of Dance. Additionally at a
young age she trained and performed with Myra Mier and the Jefferson Ballet. Wanting to further nurture
her passion of classical ballet, she went into intense training with Harvey Hysell, performing multiple
roles with the Ballet Hysell Company. While still attending high school, she studied and performed with
Loyola University Pre-Professional Program under the direction of Gayle Parmalee. Angie was also
fortunate to further her studies of classical ballet with her mentor Jackie Frye. With the New Orleans
Dance Academy she performed numerous soloist roles and appreciated the opportunity to have the
tutelage of such illustrious local talent as Wayne Soulant, Valerie Concha, and Mary Monroe. Angie was
a dancer in the Hollywood film “Fletch Lives”; she danced in the opening ceremonies of the U.S.
Olympics Track & Field event with Tina Turner and Show Corp International. She also performed in
countless local Nutcrackers, beginning at the young age of seven-and never stopping!
Angie furthered her performance career with Colombia City Ballet, located at the University of
South Carolina. She then moved to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to dance with a concentration in choreography at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. Angie choreographed and performed her original work: “Christmas Reflection-Carol of the Bells”, receiving the “Intensive Arts-Choreography Award” for an original piece with multiple dancers. Angie returned back to New Orleans to become a company member of New Orleans Ballet Ensemble/New Orleans Ballet Association. Currently, Angie prepares choreography and instruction of classical ballet, pointe, and stretch
exercise at local dance studios. In 2017, Angie assisted the New Orleans School of Ballet as the Rehearsal
Director for the inaugural performance of the Nutcracker in New Orleans; and even pursued her life-long love of the stage by performance once again!
