Joelle Bellmund, Director of Operations

November of 2003 Joelle attended a Birthday Party for a close friend at The Studio and the rest is history! She was instantly hooked on Ms. Lisa’s style and the vibe of The Studio. Joelle danced on The Studio’s Street Team and later The Element for 6 years collectively. During her time at The Studio she was blessed to train alongside industry professionals such as Brian Friedman, Sonya Tayeh, Dave Scott, Laura Edwards, and many more. As a reoccurring member of The Studio’s teams she had the opportunity to open up for world famous artists such as Snoop Dogg and Rihanna! When Joelle was 16 she became a Studio Faculty member for the first, but not last, time! Joelle taught Ballet and Hip Hop classes for two years before going to college. She attended the University of South Florida and graduated with honors in 2014 with her Bachelors in Public Health Sciences. Joelle worked in Disaster Relief at the American Red Cross in Louisville, KY for a couple years before being drawn back to her true love of dance! September of 2015 Joelle made the move back to Florida to work at The Studio once again! With hands on experience she quickly moved up to Director and has no intention of going anywhere this time. Joelle loves The Studio and has always considered it home; she has many goals and plans for The Studio’s future “We are always striving to give our dancers the best training possible in a fun and positive environment. Studio dancers are not only our students but our family!”
