About Us

Welcome to Bella Moon Studios

Welcome to Bella Moon Studios. We are a recreational dance studio offering creative dance and yoga classes for children in an inclusive  environment since 2005.  We offer 10- 12 week dance sessions fall, winter, spring and summer. All our classes have been carefully designed to nurture, inspire and engage young children. 


Miss Shannon is our Studio Director/Owner, Head Dance and Yoga Instructor. A graduate of  McMaster University's Music Program, Sheridan College's Early Childhood Education program, Mohawk College's Jazz Performance Program, and Esprit Yoga's 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training Program. 


Miss Shannon's philosophy is that the joy is in the journey, and that by creating a space that embraces imagination, play and self expression  children discover their gift naturally.  Miss Shannon brings her joy and gratitude for all the blessings in her life, years of experience as a performer, student  and teacher, and ongoing pursuit of her own creative  journey to the studio. 


 Sharing her passion for the Arts with children in the community and having the opportunity to inspire and spark creativity is incredibly rewarding.  Incorporating elements of mindfulness,  positive self-image, self-love, and embracing our differences as characteristics that make us unique and beautiful are all part of our mindset at Bella Moon. 


As a recreational studio there is no pressure or competition.  Our emphasis is on creating a joyful experience and teaching our dancers to always work towards achieving their personal best.  Our time in the studio is our time to shine. 


We value the opportunity to make a positive contribution to our young dancer’s early Arts experience.  We strive to inspire creative thinking and imagination within our dancers, as we provide them with opportunities to foster pride and success in themselves as they develop their skills, building self-esteem and confidence in each and every class.   


As educators we recognize individual strengths, areas of emerging development, and modify exercises as necessary to accommodate individual needs.  We support inclusion and promote early social development and healthy relationships by encouraging positive peer interaction.  


We believe every child deserves the opportunity to explore their interests and participate in quality and enriched Arts programs. It is not always  financially possible  for families  to provide extracurricular activities for their children.  Bella Moon Studios recognizes these circumstances and will be holding a few spots in each class for students in these situations to make sure they don’t miss out on these important experiences.  Please contact Shannon to make special arrangements if necessary. Everybody needs a little help sometimes, and we all benefit when we invest in our children.


A big thank you to all our wonderful students and their families for their ongoing support. Your feedback and word of mouth has kept us in business for almost 15 years. Our students fuel our studio with so much joy and inspiration. Watching them grow, build friendships, develop their talents and become more confident and invested in their craft is simply incredible. All the time and energy we put into our classes and recitals is a reflection of the love and adoration we have for each and every one of our dancers. Every class we strive to fill our students’ hearts with positive energy, a strong belief in themselves and the ability for them to embrace their potential.  


At Bella Moon Studios we are dedicated to making a positive contribution to today’s little stars as we guide them towards a brighter tomorrow. We look forward to another year of giggles and pigtails, tippy toes and ballerina turns, little friends, brave hearts, proud Mommies and Daddies and most of all happy & bright eyed dancers.


Love & Light,

Our Mission

Bella Moon Studios is committed to providing children with quality recreational dance classes in an inclusive environment.  

We value the opportunity to inspire creativity and imagination within our students, contributing to their early arts experience.  We believe the Arts enhance childhood and provide positive effects on child development.  

Bella Moon Studios is my delighted contribution to the Burlington Arts community.  Since we opened in 2005, I have been steadily teaching, developing classes and finding ways to grow creatively as a teacher. When I started Bella Moon I wanted to create a studio that was all about the joy of dance.  I imagined a place without the pressure of competition and dreamed instead of creating a studio which provided an inspiring environment encouraging self expression and fostering creative growth.    

Surrounded by my dancers; I often remember myself as a young dancer, bright-eyed and shy, eager yet a little afraid.   Step by step, I discovered my potential; class after class, year after year.  My love for dance inspired me to explore other areas of the Arts.  Music, drama, fine art all became interests which led to many wonderful experiences and a lifelong passion for the Performing Arts.    The Arts provide children with so much more than just a weekly activity.  They evoke imagination and offer children an outlet for their thoughts, feelings and everyday stresses.  Today’s world moves so fast for our children, giving a child a creative outlet can help them cope with difficult situations and provide them with a positive avenue to express their feelings and develop a skill.  As children, we rely on our parents to provide us with experiences that fill us up with confidence and inspiration.  These experiences shape us and our dreams.  I am so grateful for my parents, who saw the light in my eyes when I was performing and always encouraged my creative pursuits. I see this same light in the eyes of my Bella Moon dancers, young and free to explore their ideas and express themselves.  I am thankful everyday for the opportunity to fill my dancers with joy and inspiration to help shape them as young girls and encourage them to follow their dreams.
