Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

With a warm smile and a welcoming hand, Belladance wants to lead you to your first steps on a journey that will awaken your self-confidence, enhance your technique, and push your creative limits.

Throughout the year, Belladance strives to emphasize the importance of:

  • disciplined, structured classes
  • proper dance terminology and technique
  • social interaction and group participation
  • building self-esteem through positive reinforcement with a loving touch

Belladance maintains a high standard of excellence in the field of dance-exercise. Directors, Julie Keller and Bella Keller have over thirty years combined dance experience. Julie is certified with D.E.A., Dance Educators of America and a member of I.D.E.A., International Dance-Exercise Association. Director and staff participation in dance classes, conventions and continuing education programs ensures that the studio keeps abreast with the latest techniques, methods and choreography being taught throughout the country.

We offer a wide selection of educational classes in all types of dance. Classes include ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and tumbling, beginner to advanced, for students age 2.5 years to adult. Contact the studio for more information regarding our award-winning Competition teams.

Our curriculum is a structured, highly motivational approach to dance education that builds physical as well as social skills, without the stifling effects of an outdated, rigid teaching method. We strive to increase flexibility, balance and rhythm while emphasizing intellectual development, such as working as a team, taking direction, using listening skills, and building longer attention spans. Proper studio etiquette and behavior are encouraged, never losing sight of the fun and joy of dancing.
