The AcaBellas is the University of Waterloo's first upper-voice a cappella group.
Founded in 2009 by seven girls who just wanted to sing, the group has now grown to include as many as 20 members in a given term. The AcaBellas was the first a cappella ensemble at Waterloo to incorporate choreography as a major part of their performances.
The AcaBellas aim to enrich the experience of the KW area through a cappella, with genres ranging from well-known pop songs to obscure indie tracks. The AcaBellas message is that of empowerment and representation of upper-voiced singers within the a cappella community. They also promote well rounded a cappella development among members through their arranging, beatboxing, and choreography teams.
In 2016, the Bellas competed for the first time at the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) and placed 3rd in the Central Quarterfinals.
