My recent ballet event recording does have a horrible blue halo in some clips.

Probably due to blue ambient illumination it's anyway really horrible to see, I attach a capture where can be seen really good on the skirt.

Any way to delete it?

I am not sure that you are askling the question correctly. You can selectively replace a color in any area using an advanced editor. The blue spotlight on the dancer is an effect that the production company wanted.

In PD, highlight the clip. Click Fix/Enhance, Click White Balance. Use the Color temp sliders or the White calibration eyedropper to select a white spot in the clip. Check the skin tone to make sure it is still acceptable to you.

Let us know if this helps.

When colored lights are used it can wreak havoc with cameras' white balance, also affecting the clarity/focus of the shot. I imagine this chaos is even worse with low-rung cameras and small-sensor camera phones. tomasc gave you the best possible chance to minimize the issue in post, but it's best to get a better camera and practice with it.
Last year just before I set out to "tape" a music video at a club, I went down the street from where I live and quietly practiced on a restaurant. The place has lights that shine on the facade, they change color/hue every minute or so, and I did this at night (of course). It proved to be a worthy endeavor when it was time to record the band.

Yes the recording was made with a consumer camera, so the unwanted effect can come from this .

I can of course enhance color but the halo or glow effect (didn't know the right English term) it's still here.

There is no way to remove it selectively I suppose.
