Our History and our Future

‘JB Studio’ began in 1980 in Ms. Jeannine Belliston’s basement and was a dance home to many neighborhood children. Ms. Jeannine taught all genres of dance to boys and girls and inspired them to follow their dreams through the art of dance.
Little did Ms, Jeannine know that ‘JB Studio’ would one day become Belliston Academy of Ballet in 1991 and be home to well over 10,000 dancers in the Littleton community since.  Past students have gone on to dance at Pacific Northwest Ballet, Miami City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet as Rockettes, as well as becoming doctors, lawyers, teachers and many other trusted professionals, contributing positively to society.
Belliston Academy continues to be home for so many students in the Littleton community. The BEST is yet to come!
