The Bella Beats dance team was founded in 2011 by Lina Lewis, Artistic Director of Bella Dance Academy in Yellowknife, NT. In 2014, Bella Beats expanded to a Junior and Senior team to allow younger dancers to participate and work towards the senior performance team. Bella Beats is a high performance dance troupe consisting of 26 dancers aged 8 to 18 years. The Bella Beats have performed in numerous community events over the years and are honored to have worked with many great Northern artists and choreographers, as well as many from across Canada and the United States. Members of the Bella Beats have traveled to New York, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Calgary to participate in various competitions and workshops. This summer, the Dance Troupe will be heading to Anaheim for Dancerpalooza!
