Associate artistic Director
Stephanie Mumbauer, Associate Artistic Director of Dance Del Bello, received her training in classical ballet from Edmund Novak and Irina Kovalska, former soloists of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. As Associate Director of the Pennsylvania Dance Institute and faculty member since 1987, Stephanie created the curriculum for beginning and intermediate students. Stephanie has not only performed with the company, but she also choreographs and leads rehearsal for Pennsylvania Dance Institute students participating in Dance Del Bello productions.
Dance Del Bello Artistic Advisor and Choreographer, David Kloss, became a member of the newly formed Pennsylvania Ballet in 1965, where he rapidly developed from minor figure to "danseur noble." Leaving the roster in 1979, David became an adjunct professor at Cabrini College, while still performing roles created for him with Pennsylvania Ballet. He has served as teacher, consultant, and choreographer for Ballet Kloss, Stanton Hall, Studios of the Performing Arts, Philadelphia's CAPA, the Brandywine Ballet, Dance Del Bello, Ballet des Jeunes, the Pennsylvania Civic Ballet Company, and most recently, the Southern New Jersey Academy of Performing Arts. Mr. Kloss' mesmerizing interpretation of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol is presented each holiday season by Dance Del Bello.
