Our Story

Summerbella Dance Arts launched in September of 2018 and was excited to move into a 4500 square foot studio facility in Granite Bay, California.  Even though we are a new dance studio, we have instructors with decades of experience and have already seen a tremendous amount of interest from the Sacramento area dance community.  We are looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces fill our studio.  The 2021-2022 dance season will be focused on developing a strong foundation of dancers and families that will forever be the founding community of Summerbella Dance Arts.  We know this core group will stand strong in unity and professionalism for years to come.
