The Bella Beats is a high performance dance troupe consisting of dancers aged 8 to 16 years. It was founded in 2011 by Lina Lewis, Artistic Director of Bella Dance Academy. The team has represented the NWT in Alaska, California, BC, Alberta, and New York. In the summer of 2017, members of the Bella Beats traveled to Long Beach California to participate in DancerPalooza, one of the biggest dance conventions in North America. At DancerPalooza, the team chose different intensives to participate in for a week of classes. They got to work with professional choreographers, take technique classes, and some participated in music video shoots! The Bella Beats have performed in numerous community events over the years and are thrilled to be dancing at the Snowcastle for their 7th time!
