Dance Del Bello has been a part of the performing arts community since 1982 and performs twice a year.

Now in its thirty-fifth season, Dance Del Bello continues to take pride in presenting accessible, affordable, and high quality performances to its audiences. The company actively promotes dance awareness and appreciation, as well as talent development in the Delaware Valley regions of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The quality of the dance and commitment of the company is a direct result of both Ms. Del Bello Spencer’s expertise in the field and her unlimited devotion to excellence in the world of dance.

The company, comprised of area professionals, performs classical, neoclassical, and modern repertoire, drawing their choreography from classic sources like Petipa as well as up and coming choreographers: Althea Leslie, Henry Roy, and Thomas Gant, Jr.. The company also uses original choreography by Artistic Director, Delphine Del Bello Spencer, and Artistic Advisor, David Kloss.
