Baby Bellas (2 and 3 year olds)

This class is designed to teach children ages 2-4 an artistic and physical discipline through imagination and creativity. In our “Baby Bellas” program instructors use a combination of Pre-Ballet and Creative Movement to begin teaching the vary basics of dance. Props are used as tools to enlighten the child’s imagination and practice different movements. Our goal is to create a fun and loving environment where even the youngest of students is excited and encouraged to learn. (Dancers will perform a ballet dance in the recital… and they usually steal the show!)

“Bella via is a wonderful dance studio with amazing teachers. They not only work towards helping kids become better dancers, but also focus on helping them to become better people. The staff is great and the other parents are warm and friendly. Both of my daughters love dancing here!”

ANNE B.

“This is a superb place with a positive environment for kids and parents. I appreciate Megan’s natural ability to be encouraging to students and recognize their needs as dancers and as individuals. The studio itself is amazing with a café for families and a dressing room for the dancers. In addition, the restrooms have additional space, if needed. The studio is spacious and open, and we were greeted warmly by staff, parents, and dancers! We are so glad to find this place!”
