Mommy & Me

Our Mommy & Me class is a ballet-based dance class for ages 2 and 3. Your little dancer will learn the basics of dance with you right by their side. It’s a great way to introduce your child to a classroom structure by encouraging discipline and essential listening skills. Every class involves costumes and royal themes that help understand technique. And, of course, plenty of time to twirl across the dance floor with Mom or Dad.

 

Our dancers need to bring:

Attire: Leotard (any color) & ballet tights (pink)
Shoes: Leather-sole ballet shoes (pink)
Hair: Ballet bun (or otherwise pulled back)
Parents: Comfortable clothing (socks or bare feet)

Princess Ballet

Our Princess Ballet program for ages 3-5 strives to educate our students with traditional techniques, build confidence, and encourage imagination. We provide a quality dance education through individual attention to nurture a love of dance, imbued with imagery and creativity that encourages dancers to think in their own, unique way. After the hard work is done, our dancers are rewarded with dress up and special choreography.

 

This class lets our students dance without their parent in the class. It is designed for dancers with experience in a structured classroom who are ready to be on their own in class. We evaluate each new Princess Ballet student individually, and may recommend beginning with at least one Mommy & Me class. It is up to the discretion of our instructors as to which class will let your child have the best experience.

The Bella's Dance Company

Having recently wrapped up two successful seasons of “The Bellas”, we are looking forward to another wonderful year with The Bellas in our 2019-2020 seasons! The Bellas is a non-competitive, all-inclusive dance team designed to foster each student’s love of dance, and providing them with exclusive performative and educational opportunities throughout the year. The Bellas learn that hard work and dedication pay off, and that being part of a team is the most rewarding experience!

This year, we will be expanding our dance team by holding two rehearsals every Wednesday. Though each rehearsal has a designated age group, we will be holding full group rehearsals periodically throughout the year, especially around recital time. We will send out regular rehearsal schedules to keep all students informed of when they are required to attend.

1st-3rd Grade: Wednesday, 4:30 PM – 5:25 PM

This class requires 2+ years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation. Students must be enrolled in one ballet class and at least one other class.

3rd-5th Grade (req. 3+ years, or eval.): Wednesday, 5:30 PM – 6:25 PM

This class requires 3+ years of dance at Bella Ballet, or an evaluation. Students must be enrolled in one Level 2/3 ballet class and at least one other Level 2 class.

Along with weekly rehearsals, The Bellas will attend dance intensives, conventions, and performances, and engage in community service opportunities throughout the year. We want to encourage our dancers to become involved in the community, and we are excited to share this experience with our dance team in this upcoming season!
