Mommy & Me

The Mommy & Me class is a ballet based dance class in which your little dancer between the ages of 2 and 3 will learn the basics of dance with you right by their side. This class is a great way to introduce your child to a classroom structure by encouraging discipline and essential listening skills. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun, too! Every class is complete with dress up, princess imagery to help understand technique, and of course, plenty of quality time to twirl across the dance floor with Mom.

Moms (or Dads), come dressed ready to dance with your little one and watch them grow into beautiful ballerinas right before your eyes!

Princess Ballet 

Ages 3-5- 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. Whether this is your child’s first ballet class, or they have a year or two of experience, we build your dancer’s technique and challenge them to learn new and complex steps. We will provide every student with quality 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 is something our dancers look forward to every week, and their smiling faces after every class prove that hard work and perseverance really does pay off!

Traditional Ballet

Ages 6 and up- Once our dancers turn six, we feel that they are really ready to focus on becoming even stronger and confident ballerinas. Our Ballet classes ages six and up incorporate barre work, across the floor, and new choreography each week to provide our dancers with traditional ballet education and encourage them to do their best in every class. Each dancer will receive individual attention from our instructors to perfect their technique, and will also learn how to dance as a cohesive group with their classmates.

Poms

Get ready to kick, turn, and leap across the dance floor in our brand new Poms class! Children age’s 7-10 will learn this popular style of dance combining jazz, hip hip, and lyrical technique. This class will teach the children to dance as a team, while also showcasing their unique talents and skills. Being that Poms is a very upbeat style of dance, this class provides a fun and motivational environment for our dancers to really thrive. While this class requires a lot of focus, hard work, and dedication, we know your dancers will love this chance to dance, learn, and make friendships to last a lifetime!

Tap

Tap- Are you ready to expand your dance repertoire and try something new? Join us for a fun and upbeat Tap class at Bella Ballet! We combine the classic, broadway style tap with modern, rhythm tap, giving our students variety in their Tap technique. We begin the year focusing on more simple technique, and build up to complex steps that can be achieved with a little practice and hard work!

Each class will consist of a thorough warm up, essential one on one time with each dancer, and a short routine to prepare our students to pick up choreography rather quickly. Our students will learn to understand the rhythm of music, and complement that rhythm with the sound they make with their own shoes. Get your tap shoes on, and get ready to learn something new and have fun!

Hip Hop

Get ready to move, shake, and jump to the beat of the music in a Hip Hop class at Bella Ballet! This fun and exciting class will give our students the opportunity to express themselves through the freedom of dance and discover their own unique style of movement. Not only will we focus on technique, but our dancers will also learn to understand the meaning of rhythm and tone of the music and how to showcase that through dance. Your child will love dancing to their favorite songs and learning some of their favorite Hip Hop moves, all while boosting their confidence and having fun!

Broadway/Musical Theater

Our Broadway and Musical Theater classes are 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 and action-packed 45 minute class.
Each class is complete with a vocal lesson, broadway jazz dance technique and choreography rehearsal, and acting exercises to turn your performer into a “triple threat.” 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. Watch your child light up the stage this year at Bella Ballet!

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.
