Since 2004, Bella Dance Academy has built a reputation for excellence in dance instruction. Whether you are interested in dance as a form of recreation, self-expression, or with dreams of pursuing a career in dance, you can find your way at Bella Dance Academy. Our classes are taught by caring, skilled instructors in a warm environment that fosters self-esteem, discipline, teamwork, and positive influence. 


Bella Dance Academy is located in Yellowknife, NT and offers Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Mini Movement, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, Pre-Pointe, Pointe, Contemporary, and Acro to all ages and a variety of skill levels.​ BDA also has a Pre-School and Kinder program designed to enhance gross motor coordination and nurture imagination. 

At Bella Dance Academy, our mission is enriching lives through the arts. We are passionate about working together to achieve our goals, building strong connections between our Bella families, students, and faculty, and community service. We want our dancers to learn so much more than dance - we want them to become confident, conscientious, and contributing members of our community.

The BDA Culture of being "More Than Just Great Dancing" is our most important mission and we appreciate being positive partners with you in helping your child grow and reach their full potential. 

We believe that DANCE lessons teach LIFE lessons! We teach dance to not only create strong dancers, but we also use dance as a platform to teach lessons that are invaluable to our students throughout their lives.  Work ethic, team work, determination, compassion, confidence, responsibility, respecting instructors and peers, the ability to manage their time and make wise decisions, taking feedback and applying it, accountability, resiliency, adaptability and being prepared for their commitments are just a few of the values that we are instilling in our dancers.​


Bella Dance Academy looks forward to growing within our community, offering additional styles and levels of dance, preparing students for RAD and CDTA exams as well as providing the opportunity for travel, competition and performance opportunities.

Bella Dance Academy is located at #103 - 349 Old Airport Road. Our studio has exceptional facilities especially designed for dance. Our studio consists of: a reception area, a large waiting room for parents and a waiting/change room for dancers, two washrooms, three dance areas (with sprung floors, full length mirrors and dance barres) and a retail boutique.  The Academy is bright, clean and comfortable.  We offer over 60 classes per week, with over 15 instructors who are all experienced in the style of dance that they teach.

Our Studio Values are incredibly important to us, and directly influence the way that we teach our students, build our programs, and interact with our BDA families, staff, and students. We are so grateful for our incredible BDA Community, and look forward to having you join us!

Bella Dance Academy has been here for the YK Community youth for almost two decades. We were here yesterday, we are here today and we will be here tomorrow for your children and our dance family. So whether you are taking your first steps, or preparing for your senior year, we say "Welcome Home!”
