My daughter began taking classes at Belliston Academy when she was 9 years old. She began with 2 classes a week, but kept increasing, because the more she took, the more she loved it. The passion she has for dance was fostered by the current and former professional dancers that she had as instructors there. She was accepted into their Pre-Professional program at age 12 and continued in this exceptional program until she graduated from high school and moved on to start her own professional career in ballet. She loved the different styles of dance in all of the classes she took and how they worked together to make her a well rounded dancer. She also learned many life skills such as time management, a strong work ethic, how to work as a team, and she developed life-long friendships as well. As a parent, I am forever grateful for Belliston Academy’s influence on my daughter’s life.

My daughter started dancing kind of late in the game at the age of 12. The Belliston staff and dancers have been so supportive! She started with just a few hours a week and now is up to 10 hours a week. She just can’t get enough! Dancing with Belliston has done so many great things for her so far. She has improved with her grades at school, she is more confident, helps out more around the house, and has made so many great friends. Looking forward to seeing her growth over the next few years!

This year she and her brother both had their classical ballet stage debut in the studio's version of The Nutcracker. I have been so impressed with everyone at this studio from the staff to the students to the parents. It is a safe and warm environment for all children to learn and develop. The school is accredited to teach in both Royal Academy of Ballet and Checchetti dance methodologies, and makes sure dancers are physically able to start en pointe before allowing them to do so. They also have their own swimming pool for pointe conditioning! Extremely responsible and thoughtful dance education and mentoring.
