Jennelle Wax


Our Founder

Jennelle Wax

Jennelle is a certified, nationally recognized dancer and instructor specializing in ballroom, Latin, and swing dancing. In 2009, Jenelle founded Bella Ballroom with the intention of making dance instruction intuitive, less intimidating, and a stress-free part of wedding planning. She wanted dancing to be easily accessible to everyday people who would probably not be dancing if it weren’t for their special event, thus maintains Bella Ballroom as the supportive, patient, approachable and fun environment that it is.

Jennelle has had the pleasure to work with many A-List celebrities as a dancer and as their dance teacher. She regularly performs for celebrity events, fundraisers, and private parties throughout Southern California, and her dynamic performing skills and easy-going approach to dance instruction have been featured extensively.
