We built our team Bella&Bello through life-loving individuals who have shown their strength in overcoming their hardships of all sorts by practicing dance. We started a decade ago not just as a company but as a way of life. A place where through dance we can celebrate and practice hard work, discipline and mutual respect for each other and our abilities. Our routines are a reflection of our imagination and our ability to overcome our struggles. We can do it! We always have and we will continue to inspire others.
