This 2018-2019 season is Miss Jackie’s 3rd year and 4th recital with Bella Ballet. She started as a part time administrator and has grown to love Bella Ballet that she has made her full time gig as our Creative Director. She has even started co-teaching Princess Ballet classes! Being a mom of two young boys who love dinosaurs and video games, she is able to get her fix of pink, sparkle and tutu’s each day at the studio. Miss Jackie enjoys being a boy mom, watching Star Wars and Harry Potter, catching live concerts and going to the theatre. “Bella Ballet has really given me the confidence to be a strong women and a leader. I am so proud to be able to instill these life changing characteristics into our students on a daily basis!”
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!
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.
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.
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”).
Dance is a beautiful form of expressing one’s self. Watch your children develop their confidence, coordination, and graces (physical and social) through learning the art of ballet.
I’ve been a performer most my life. I took my first dance class and slipped on my first pair of pointe shoes at 3 years old. And it’s made me a true believer in the power of performance. I’m not just talking about that moment when you’re in the spotlight, but every...
