Instructor Bella

Hi my name is Bella and I am the owner and director of Bella Dance Affairs.
The classes I teach are Brazilian Samba, Burlesque, Showgirls, Contemporary, Hot Heels and Solo/Duet Development.

I started dancing from a young age in classical classes of Ballet and Jazz, then moved around during my time in the Air Force, met my husband started a family and danced whenever I could find the time in Burlesque and Belly Dance, after 13yr in the Air Force I got out and moved back to my home town and started full time dancing again in Burlesque, Brazilian Samba, Cabaret and Contemporary.
Then in September 2016 I opened Bella Dance Affairs a place I knew adults come and learn how to dance in a safe and judgement free environment no matter their level of dance experience.
Bella Dance Affairs is a place of happiness and has areal dance family vibe about it.      As of July 19 I moved to the USA but am honoured to know that the Bella Dance Affairs family is still strong as ever and will continue to keep grow until I return. I have had the privilege of working with so many artist from not only Australia but from parts of the world for many years now.

Sharing the Dance Love xx


Instructor Claire

Hi my name is Claire and I teach Modern Jazz at Bella Dance Affairs. I started dancing at the age of five, with Ballet and Calisthenics in Adelaide. Since then I’ve trained in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Irish, Highland, Cabaret, Burlesque, Brazilian Samba and Musical Theatre. I began teaching cabaret at Bella Dance Affairs towards the end of 2017 and Ballet in 2018. I fell in love with the family, student base, instructors and beautiful friends I've made along the way. Cabaret and ballet, along with every style offered at BDA are for adults of all levels, beginner to advanced. I’ve had students who’ve never danced a day in their lives through to company trained dancers from overseas. All get along amazingly and the class is adjusted to cater each students abilities! Really look forward to seeing you all this term! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to make contact via the Bella Dance Affairs Townsville Facebook page. Happy Dancing x

I have been dancing since I was 9 and danced throughout high school before taking a break at the beginning of my university studies. I started dancing again at BDA just over a year ago and have loved every second. My favourite aspect of dance is how it brings so many different people together in a fun and supportive environment.

Instructor Ange

Hi! My name is Ange and I have been a Dance Fitness Instructor for 6 years in various gyms and studios in Townsville and Brisbane. Zumba was my first ever passion in Dance Fitness and I still LOVE it today!
It's great for people who aren't into the gym and want to combine fitness and fun at the same time and any fitness level is welcomed. It is definitely not a super serious class, my cheeks literally hurt from after the class from laughing and smiling so much. It is also a great way to meet new people and form friendships. It is countless the number of friends and best friends at that, I have made from doing this class. It is the 1 thing that keeps me passionate about it.
