Gaithersburg, MD (June 6, 2019)—Grand tutus, pink ballet slippers, and 500 ballerinas, ages 3 to 12, will all be center stage in the 5th annual spring recital featuring students from the Bella Ballet dance studio in the Kentlands (Gaithersburg, MD).

The event will be held at Quince Orchard High School on June 8 and 9. “This recital will be the biggest and best one yet!” says Hope MacDonald, owner of Bella Ballet. “Our girls have worked so hard this year and are eager to show what they’ve learned,” she adds. The recital will occur over two days, starting at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The theme for the 2019 performance is When You Wish Upon A Star, which is very apropos for the dance studio, as it has made many a dream come true for its students. A new dream come true for MacDonald is the recent launch of her Confidence by Hope line of inspirational apparel. Her comfortable and motivating shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets will be available for sale during the recital.

The studio would like to thank the sponsors of this year’s recital for their ongoing support of local business and the community: British Swim School, Burke and Flinn Orthodontics, Capital Benefits, Sho & Co. Interior Design, and Total Access Urgent Care.
