Princess Ballet 

The idea behind our Ballet program for children ages 3-5 is simple; we strive to educate our students with traditional technique, build confidence, and encourage their imagination. We will provide every student with a quality dance education and individual attention to nurture their love of dance, while incorporating imagery and creativity to encourage our dancers to think in their own, unique way. After all the hard work is done, our ballerina’s are rewarded with dress up and special choreography at the end of class.

This class is designed for our dancers who have experience in a structured classroom and are ready to be on their own in class. We require our dancers to have participated in at least one session of Mommy & Me, or they may be evaluated to see if the Princess Ballet class is a good fit. It is up to the discretion of the teachers as to which class will best suit your child to allow them to get the most out of every class.

Traditional Ballet

Level 1 – Our Ballet Level 1 classes incorporate barre work, stretching, across the floor, and choreography each week to provide our dancers with traditional ballet education and encourage them to learn something new in every class. Each dancer will focus on perfecting their technique with the help of their instructors, and will also learn how to dance as a cohesive group with their classmates.

Level 2/3 / Pre-Pointe – Our Ballet Level 2/3 Pre-pointe class is designed for students who have experience in a traditional ballet class. Our students work hard to refine their technique each week, including leaps and turns, to challenge them in every class and get them ready to dance on pointe in the future. We will also incorporate choreography each week to give our students practice in picking up choreography rather quickly. This class requires 2 or more years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation.

Contemporary / Lyrical

Contemporary and Lyrical are both such beautiful styles of dance, incorporating technique from various styles and encouraging each dancer to embrace their own unique style of dance. This class combines technical and graceful ballet movement with powerful Hip Hop style, while teaching each dancer to pair their movement and emotions with the music. This class requires 2 or more years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation.

Tap, Hip Hop, and Jazz

For the second portion of class, students learn jazz-inspired hip hop technique and upbeat choreography.

Tap/Hip Hop Level 2/3 – Tap and Hip Hop are both such fun and unique styles of dance! During this class, your child will learn a combination of broadway and rhythm Tap, as well as challenging jazz-inspired Hip Hop choreography, that both challenges our students and inspires them to work hard doing what they love! This class requires 2 or more years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation.

Jazz/Hip Hop Level 2/3 – Our Jazz/Hip Hop class combines traditional Jazz technique, along with upbeat and challenging Hip Hop choreography to help your child become the most well-rounded dancer he or she can be! This fast-paced class will encourage each dancer to develop their own unique style of dance, while focusing on refining their technique. This class requires 2 or more years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation.

Ballet/Hip Hop – This class is an expansion of our Princess Ballet class, perfect for your graceful yet sassy ballerina! We combine traditional ballet technique with high energy hip hop movement throughout class, with dress up included in each class as well. This class is a perfect fit for our girly and spunky ballerinas who love to use their imaginations.

Broadway and Musical Theater

Broadway – Our Broadway class is designed for our most spirited dancers who were born to perform! Your child will build their singing, acting, and dancing skills in this fast paced class. We focus on jazz style dance, and learn excerpts from kid-friendly musicals to ensure our performers are engaged and are learning new material each class.
Musical Theatre Level 1 – This Jazz-style class is perfect for our “triple-threat” performers, who love to sing, dance, and act! Thought the year, our students will learn excerpts from different musicals, ranging from ballads to uptempo songs, all carefully selected to inspire and motivate our students to become well-rounded and confident performers.
Musical Theatre Level 2 – Our level 2 Musical Theatre class will further expand your dancer’s jazz technique with new moves each week, including leaps and turns, along with excerpts from various Broadway musicals. We will challenge our performers to incorporate their acting skills in their dancing and singing, to help them to become well-rounded performers! This class requires 2 or more years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation.

Testimonials

“The Best Teacher”

Miss Hope introduced our 2.5-year-old daughter to dance and she has, by far, been the best teacher our daughter has known. Hope possesses an enthusiasm for dance that is infectious not only for her students, but also for their parents. Her passion for teaching dance is obvious and shines brightest in the classroom where the love shared between her and her students is palpable. Through positive reinforcement and leading by example, she controls her classroom masterfully which results in an experience rich in skill development with lots and lots of fun!

“She clearly has a special talent for working with children…”

Ms. MacDonald clearly has a way with young children. She is patient, energetic and obviously enjoys her profession. Ms. MacDonald took the time to focus on each child individually and provided them encouragement and direction in a manner that was highly conducive to learning and finding great pleasure in the activity. She is adept at translating ballet concepts and techniques into terms children can understand and appreciate. She uses a variety of educational techniques to demonstrate dance concepts, while addressing the multiple learning styles of the children (i.e. reading books, dressing-up, playing “pretend”).

“Creates a wonderful fairytale land that every princess must experience…”

Hope MacDonald of Bella Ballet creates a wonderful fairytale land that every princess must experience. Thank you for making my daughters first exposure to ballet such a memorable experience! She can’t wait for her next class.

“…a beautiful experience for not only our daughter but for our whole family.”

Dancing with Miss Hope is like taking lessons from a real live Disney Princess! From the moment you enter her studio, Miss Hope is larger than life and her energy transfers to the little girls as excitement and love for dancing. Dance instruction is infused with make-believe play in which every girl is a “ballerina princess.” I catch myself peeking into the studio windows to witness the magical fun my daughter is experiencing. This is a fun part about having a little girl!

“You cannot go wrong by choosing Miss Hope and Bella Ballet as your child’s dance studio”

If you are looking for an amazing and confidence building dance studio for your little one, you have come to the right place! Hope is so great with the kids and so professional. She has an awesome ability to be gentle yet firm during class. The kids really respond to her and adore her. We are blessed to know Hope outside of the studio and I can honestly say she is a young woman who has an exciting future ahead of her! She is kind and giving and truly loves to teach.

Miss Hope is an amazing ballet teacher!

My daughter just loves her and looks forward to her class each week. She has learned so much in short period of time and I even catch her practicing on her own. You can truly see how much Miss Hope cares for each of her students and adjusts her teaching style to fit each student’s needs. My daughter has just bloomed since she started Miss Hope’s ballet class.
