Our Mission

We're cranking up the music and rolling out the hot pink carpet for an additional epic chapter of Bella Ballet right here in the heart of the charming Kentlands community. After a decade of making vibrant strides and nurturing amazing families in this spirited neighborhood, it's time to pull back the curtain and introduce you to our second location “Empower by Bella Ballet.”

Empower by Bella Ballet is more than just a dance studio. It's a safe haven for children ages 7-18 where we don't just provide professional and cutting edge dance techniques; We aspire to inspire, to empower our youth to become more than dancers - to become leaders, change-makers, and confident individuals. We cultivate an environment that encourages life-affirming values of resilience, leadership, inclusivity, and kindness. We promote a culture that uplifts every dancer to have a strong sense of self- esteem and body image, celebrates diversity, and we stand fiercely against bullying with unwavering resolve.

Community sits at the heart of Empower by Bella Ballet. We're passionate about fostering a philanthropic spirit within our young dancers, involving them in monthly community outreach activities and hosting special events to support beloved local charities including “Comfort Cases”, “The Tree House Mid-Atlantic”, and “Nourish Now”. Our goal is to show our dancers that they can make a difference, inspiring them to be active contributors to their community.

Strap in, because from the second you sashay through our studio doors, our transformative dance experience will propel you into a high-octane whirl of self-expression, incubator of talent, and a launchpad for tomorrow's leaders.

This is YOUR stage, where every plié fuels your fire, every jeté lets your spirit fly, and every calypso is a spark igniting your wildest dreams.

Empower by Bella Ballet is about tapping into your unshakeable power, unleashing your boundless creativity, and taking center stage in your own extraordinary journey. So come, let's defy gravity and dance into your power at Empower by Bella Ballet!

Don’t fret, we hold fast to our heartwarming mission of building confident ballerinas, one twirl at a time, at our original location. A haven for our younger dancers aged 2-7, where their first steps into the magical world of dance are met with the love and encouragement they deserve.

You’ve Asked, We Listened!

Jeté-ing With Joy,

Hope MacDonald
