A Letter From the Owner

A letter from the Owner

At Bella Ballet, we believe in more than just teaching dance steps; we strive to instill a sense of empowerment in every child who enters our studio. We understand that dance is not merely an art form but a transformative journey that allows young women to discover their inner strength, build confidence, and learn to love themselves.

Our commitment to excellence is unwavering. We take great pride in delivering the finest award-winning children's dance classes, meticulously crafted to nurture the unique talents and abilities of each and every dancer. From the moment they step through our doors at the tender age of 2, until they reach the blossoming age of 7, our dancers are guided by exceptional dance instructors who inspire them to be the best version of themselves.

For children age 7-17, check out our new studio Empower by Bella Ballet opening Fall 2023 in the Kentlands!

Jeté-ing With Joy,

Hope MacDonald

miss hope from bella ballet

OPEN FOR ENROLLMENT

Miss Hope opened Bella Ballet in 2013 at age 24 with $5,000 of her savings. It was her dream to create a dance school for kids where children were able to learn traditional dance repertoire with a sound dance education all while learning key values to inspire confidence and spark passions. She wanted a space that empowered dancers with leadership skills, addressed bullying, built positive body image, provided empowerment, and promoted other positive values like respect, kindness, and love for all.

In her third year in business, a pivotal and challenging year for many business owners, Miss Hope was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Rather than let that slow her down, she used it as fuel to teach her students everyday about the importance of a positive mindset and overcoming adversity. Through willpower, prayers, and a healthy diet, she has not let the diagnosis slow her down one bit.

Since its inception, Bella Ballet has grown into much more than a kids dance school, and has added various styles including ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, musical theatre, a program for children with special needs, and contemporary dance.

Bella Ballet is now a a staple in the Kentlands community with a team of fifteen, holding 52 classes a week, teaching more than 500 students weekly, continuing to build confident ballerinas one twirl at a time.
