“Someone will say to me, “Look at what you have done with the school,” And I'll reply, “What do you mean?” We just do what we do here. But I do feel huge pride when I see the children's joy, and then watch them go on to fulfil their dreams.”

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.
