What Makes Us Unique?

La Belle Vie or “The Beautiful Life” is exactly what we hope to inspire. We are focused on providing a positive, fun, and encouraging atmosphere for everyone who walks through our doors. It is our goal to provide excellent training while also cultivating the hearts of each student and client.

Our dream is to encourage our students and clients to find the beauty that is present in their lives and in the world around them. We hope to nurture them to love the Lord and praise him through everything that they do. Our desire is to be a light to the world to show others the love of Christ through our dancing.

In our dance programs, students will have the opportunity to learn to minister to others through dance and also use it as a form of worship to God. We want to teach our students that all we do is to glorify God and that we should pursue excellence in everything that we do. It is also our goal to provide a studio free from gossip or conflict where every dancer and client will feel safe and loved on by the teachers, as well as by their heavenly Father.

La Belle Vie’s fitness classes are tailored to achieve physical fitness, cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, and flexibility. Each class is structured to create fast, lasting results while also providing diversity through cardio workouts on the trampoline, sculpting ballet-styled classes to perfect your technique and posture, as well as stretching for flexibility and healthy joints and connective tissue.


We specialize in bringing athletes, dancers, performers, and everyone in between the best training in both health & fitness as well as injury prevention. You deserve a chance to reach your highest goals and potential and we are here to help you do that.

In addition to our fitness programs, we also offer a nutrition program that helps clients learn more about health either in conjunction with their fitness program or on its own and how it can affect their overall health. Our Health Specialists believe that dieting is not the answer but eating well and enjoying what you eat is key to weight loss, lower stress levels and so much more.


We hope that you will join us on this wonderful journey. Welcome to the family!


Dance Classes

Pre-Ballet & Tap

Ages 4-5

In pre-ballet and tap we are going to focus on learning basic ballet moves and positions as well as basic technique. We will have fun stretching, twirling, tapping our toes, and meeting new ballet friends!

1 Hour

Beginning Tap

Ages 8-11

We will be working on harder combinations and technique. Students will be required to learn more intricate routines for the recital as well.

1 Hour

Ballet 2

Ages 15-17 (mostly based on ability rather than age)

Floor barre and center barre will be used more often in this class to build the strength and balance the dancers need to move on to Ballet 3. The students will continue to work with more techniques but at a higher level.

1 Hour

Private Dance Lessons

Ages 8+

These classes are offered to students who are interested in raising their level of dance. They will be learning at a more professional level of ballet to build up their ability, flexibility, endurance, and more. Please call for openings and times.

45 Minutes - 1 Hour

Intro to Ballet & Tap

Ages 6-7

A step up from our pre-ballet class, this class gets just a bit harder. We will be focusing on more technique, barre work, center floor combinations, and across the floor work.

1 Hour

Ballet 1

Ages 12-14 (mostly based on ability rather than age)

Now that you are in the "big kid" class, you are expected to know all of the basic ballet terms and should be able to perform them correctly. We will be focusing on more difficult technique and center work as well as floor barre.

1 Hour

Ballet 3

Ages 18+ (mostly based on ability rather than age)

By the time the students reach this class, they have learned almost all of the ballet terms, built up the strength and balance for more center work, and have increased their flexibility to do more stretches.

1 Hour

Women's Cultural Dance

Ages 18+

This class will focus on creating movements that will build stamina, concentration, and grace. We will be learning various routines from different areas around the world. At the end of the year, the women will have the opportunity to perform in the end of the year recital (optional). For the recital, they will learn a piece of choreography and will perform it on stage wearing traditional costumes.

45 Minutes

Beginning Ballet

Ages 8-11

To get ready for the "big kid" class, we start working on harder combinations, technique, and barre. Students will be required to learn more intricate routines for the recital as well.

1 Hour


Invitation only

We will start inviting girls ages 10 and up to this class to make sure they are prepared for pointe when they turn 12. They will not be working in pointe shoes but will have the opportunity to strengthen their ankles, toes, and legs to make pointe a little easier. Toward the end of the year, the girls will be attending the Pointe class with the pointe dancers but will not be on pointe themselves. This is a great way to allow the girls to see what to expect when en pointe and to help them decide whether they like it or not.

45 Minutes


Invitation only

Once the girls have finished the pre-pointe class they are invited (if ready) to join our pointe class. They must be 12 years old before they are allowed to be en pointe. If the girls would like to take this class they are required to take either Ballet 1, 2, or 3.

45 Minutes

Creative Dance

Ages 6+

Creative dance combines the basics of various styles of dance to increase coordination, body awareness, and rhythm while using props and patterns to build routines. Each month will have a theme and will include theatrical entertainment. The students taking this class will have the opportunity to learn basic choreography to build their own routines as a group and will showcase what they have learned at the recital.

1 Hour


When signing up for dance, there is a one-time registration fee of $10 paid annually.

Signing up with a Personal Trainer requires an initial assessment which will determine the best program for the client and their unique goals. For one month, clients will train using their personalized workout sessions as well as follow-ups with their trainer both in person and via Skype. Personal Trainers will monitor each workout to help the client avoid injury and encourage proper form. Clients are also taught how to build menu plans based on their own dietary needs.

Clients will also be taught how to build menu plans based on their own dietary needs.
Weight-Loss Program


Our weight-loss program offers both nutritional and fitness aid to help you lose weight without sacrificing your health. This program is open to all ages and is tailored to meet the client's own personal needs. Your trainer will help you build a specialized menu and work with any special health issues you may have.


If you have recently had surgery for your weight, please get permission from your doctor and let your personal trainer know ahead of time.

Clients will also learn how to build a proper menu plan based on their own dietary needs.


Ask about adding your Bridesmaids so that you can all work out together. The fee is $10/week for each additional person.


Nutrition Program

The goal of our nutrition program is to help educate clients on the responsibility they must take in their own lives and provide the best, most reliable care.


Our nutrition program establishes a firm foundation for nutritional insight and application based on the client’s health-specific needs. A health assessment will be performed upon signing with a Health Specialist which will determine the client’s specific need for various nutritional categories including proper fat intake, carbohydrate intake, and protein intake. This assessment will also determine how quickly the client burns calories (metabolism) and how their diet must be adjusted accordingly to prevent deficiencies.


Clients will also gain a better understanding of how vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other energy and non-energy yielding nutrients work together to provide proper nutritional value. The client and trainer will also discuss free radicals and their effect on the body and how to avoid them. Finally, clients will gain a better understanding of how deficiencies in any of the above essentials can be a detriment to overall healthy living.


What You Can Expect


  • The differences between counting calories, using the food guide pyramid and portioning.

  • The benefits and downsides to various, trendy diet programs

  • Using nutrition for weight loss, muscle gain, anti-aging, improved energy/endurance, improving hormones, increasing sports performance, and more.

  • The differences between pre and post-workout fueling

  • How to use nutritional supplementation properly

  • Weekly check-ins with your trainer & periodic re-assessments and revisions

  • Recipes, meal-preparation tips, recommended products, and more included in either PDF format or a personalized binder (extra fee).


Upon signing with a Health Specialist, clients will have to fill out an informed consent document as well as a New Client Health Assessment Form and Behavior Questionnaire. These forms will help the trainer properly decide what type of nutritional plan to put the client on as well as inform the trainer of any preexisting health concerns.


When combined with a fitness training program, the health program will be more tailored to suit the client’s current physical fitness schedule, pre and post-training fueling needs, and the specific program selected (i.e. weight-loss, pre-natal, athletic performance, etc.). Though we do recommend that these two programs go hand-in-hand, our health program is a great option for anyone apart from a specific fitness program and can be utilized by all ages.

We recommend a minimum 3-month period to get your body back on track nutritionally.


When signing on as a fitness and/or nutrition client, there is no initial fee.

Our fitness and nutrition memberships generally last one-month and can be renewed automatically.

We encourage you to drop in on any of our group classes whenever you can for a one-time fee.
