Classes to Choose From

From Traditional Ballet to Poms, from Mommy & Me to Broadway, our kid’s dance school offers every genre your child could want here at Bella Ballet.

MEET MISS HOPE

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 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, addressing bullying, building positive body image, providing empowerment, and promoting 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.

COVID SAFETY PROTOCOL

These are challenging times for everyone, and we’re doing everything we can to ensure you and your child are as safe as possible at Bella Ballet. Please watch this brief video below to see how we’re keeping Bella Ballet students and families safe.

** As of February 2022, there have been ZERO COVID-19 cases traced to our studio. We have an incredibly in-depth cleaning protocol at our kid’s dance school, including deep cleans between bathroom use and classes, and using a fogger with 70% isopropyl alcohol on every touch surface at the end of each day. We take the health and safety of our students and families very seriously! **

WE GO THE EXTRA MILE

What PARENTS SAY ABOUT BELLA BALLET

Best dance studio ever!! My 4 year old daughter has been coming here since mommy and me classes 2 years ago. The owner is amazing and so are all the teachers. They are all so loving and caring with the kids.
Robyn T.
From princess birthday parties to recitals to dance team (The Bellas) and everything in between, I can vouch for the fact that Bella Ballet is an amazing studio. Ms. Hope employs the kindest teachers and stands behind her goal of making sure that kids are kind, included, and appropriate on every level.
Julie F.
Being a part of the Bella Ballet family is far more than just about dance instruction. My daughter has transformed from a timid four year old, often in tears, to a kind, confident and respectful third grader.
