Devine Angels

We are the only competition team in IA to compete exclusively in the most elite category at competitions. Over 90% of our group pieces have earned a top overall placement for the past five years. In addition, our team earned Platinums for every group piece at Nationals this past season.  

We compete exclusively in the most elite category because we believe in every one of our dancers. Our team is built on the idea that anyone can accomplish their highest aspirations if they are willing to put in the work. Team teachers get to know each dancer on a personal level to enhance their strengths and reach their personal best. We don’t lower the bar; we raise each other up. If you are interested in learning more about our team you should email Kelli directly at kelbeldanz@gmail.com.

The aim of this team is beyond dance competitions. The larger goal is to enrich your character in ways that are essential for success in every aspect of life. The two Ds in our logo symbolize Devine Dancers. But for team members those Ds represent Discipline and Dedication.

Research shows self-discipline is possibly the best predictor for long-term success. And a common misconception is that confidence can be given to people through compliments.  However, confidence is developed through personal progress and measurable achievement (Kwang & Swann, 2010; Wigfield & Ecceles, 2002). This philosophy is at the heart of our Devine Team. Here is what you can expect from a team membership at Devine:

  • You will develop annual goals to give clear direction for your personal growth.
  • You will learn the value of the 3Ps: Performance, Power, and Precision.
  • You will be challenged both athletically and artistically.
  • You will accelerate your dance training through advanced technique and tricks.
  • And you will find support from your teammates as you progress.
