The expert instructors of Bellan Performance Centre helm a variety of dance classes, imparting the art of movement to anyone older than 2. The class curriculum, which blends old and new styles like a horse buggy with a dragon airbrushed onto its side, includes hip-hop-esque Funk Fusion and Jazz classes that move beyond basic jazz hands. DanceBody takes advantage of boogying’s natural calorie-burning power with a workout aimed at core strength, balance, and flexibility, and Salsa Latin Rhythms sets hearts drumming along to world-music beats as students learn the fundamentals of timing, footwork, and dancing with a partner, though solo dancers are welcome. The online schedule lists daily classes calibrated to different age groups, such as Pre-School (2–4), Youth (5-8), Apprentice (9–18), and Open (18 and older), though any student may join any class with the permission of the center’s artistic director or a doctor’s note certifying that they age backward.
Bellan Performance Centre
Fueled by her passion for performance art, fashion, and choreography, Durham native Anjanée N. Bell founded Bellan Performance Centre as a philanthropic organization, and as a destination for those individuals with interests as diverse as her own. The disciplines and fundamentals of dance weave a common thread through the facility's many endeavors, which include aspirations to emerge as a performance-art community by way of engaging live shows. Off stage, Bellan provides various educational programs and fitness classes that encourage participants of all ages to get up and move, even if they lack the experience and spring-loaded toes of many professional steppers.
