Baby Bellas (2 and 3 year olds)

Bella Via’s Baby Bellas classes are designed to enhance gross motor coordination, listening skills, musicality and nurture imagination. Each class includes developmentally appropriate instruction through the use of music and 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 have onstage performance opportunities in our new Winter Showcase in December, and the annual Recital in June (… and they usually steal the show!).

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!”
