Weekly Classes

Bloom at Bella Dance Academy

We are thrilled to launch our brand new Bloom Program! Our Bloom Programs are designed to enhance coordination, listening skills, musicality, and nurture imagination in all dancers ages 2 - 6. Each class includes developmentally appropriate instruction through music and movement. Styles vary.

Mini Movement ​focuses on heightening the child's abilities in creativity and expressions, and developing a sense of self. Classes will emphasize fun while introducing pre-primary technique to enhance balance, rhythm and musicality in a relaxed environment.

Bloom Combo brings together Hippity Hop, Fairy Tale Ballet, and Kinder Broadway. This class is the perfect way to try out multiple styles and pick your favourite one for the fall!
