Today, U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (SBC), announced Studio Geaux of Jennings, La. as Small Business of the Week, and will be submitting it into the official Congressional Record.

“For each small business success story, there is a fascinating background, and the establishment of Studio Geaux in Jennings, La. is no exception. Louisiana native and former LSU Golden Girl, Caroline Cormier launched a dance studio to both increase awareness of and participation in the arts, and also help make the life of a busy parent a little easier,” said Vitter. “Congratulations to Small Business of the Week Studio Geaux. I look forward to your continued success as a young, ambitious, and successful entrepreneur as you continue to engage young folks in fun, physical activity in southwest Louisiana.”

In 2014, former Louisiana State University Golden Girl Caroline Cormier opened Studio Geaux in Jennings, La. with the goal of engaging young folks in fun, physical activity in southwest Louisiana. Today, Studio Geaux offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and physical conditioning for students aged 2-18. Additionally, Cormier and her team began Dance on the Geaux, a program that provides dance classes to young students in local schools.

As SBC Chairman, Vitter continues the tradition of honoring America’s small businesses and entrepreneurs.
