Here’s the Story from A to Z
DivaDance is the only dance experience for adults.
Here’s a little about us: DivaDance began franchising in 2015, but our commitment to inspiring confidence and building community goes back much further. DivaDance has an unwavering commitment to inclusion, empowerment, and creating a safe space for all adults. We just happen to have a lot of fun too, as we offer all-levels of choreography in our classes, parties, and programs. It’s a sexy, sweaty, stress-free pop-music dance party!

It's an honor to be the manager of the NYC team (where DivaDance was started!) and to work to inspire our staff to bring their best to the studio every day. Our clients are important to us, especially in a city like New York where connection and community can make a big difference. You'll find the DivaDance community is spicy, trendsetting, diverse, super supportive, and always looking to live their best lives.
I immediately connected with the company’s core values of confidence and community. Even before I tried my first class, I knew I wanted to bring DivaDance to my area to help others, but more importantly to be an example for my two young daughters. I wanted to show them they can do anything if they are determined and put in the work.
I danced my way through life in many talent shows, dance teams, and as an NFL cheerleader for the Indianapolis Colts! I've always wanted to open my own studio to continue dancing and to give an outlet for those that love to dance too! I brought DivaDance to Atlanta because of shared values and mission of dance fitness in a space that offers women of all shapes, sizes, shades, and dance/fitness levels a unique form of exercise.
I had a strong desire to create a space where people could feel loved and accepted and beautiful just as they are. Once I felt the power of that room I knew this is exactly what I wanted to bring to our city. We are growing together, learning together, and impacting San Antonio together one sexy, sweaty class at a time.
For 2 years, I was dancing in as many classes as I could and building confidence and friendships along the way. In 2018, I became an instructor in hopes of inspiring others, just as I had been doing. The countless messages I've received from clients about how I've positively impacted their lives is what inspired me to launch my own DivaDance franchise!
I wanted to be a part of an inclusive dance community, one that is completely free of competition and welcomes everyone. I have danced since the age of 3 and I love being able to provide community for people with varying ranges of dance experience. As an adult, especially in DC, it is easy to get lost in professional (and personal) goals. At every class, we are able to offer ourselves and our clients a break from reality and an opportunity to invest in themselves.
I brought DivaDance to BCS because of the most empowering values of Confidence and Community. Entering into my first DivaDance ATX class as a client, I was struggling with personal insecurities and after just ONE visit, my life changed. After that experience, I felt relieved, confident, rejuvenated, and part of something special. I absolutely love the idea of dancing, having fun, connecting with others, and feeling sexy!
I want women, like myself, to be able to be free, gain confidence, and feel good about themselves. As a mom and wife, I found myself getting lost in these roles and needed an outlet that was just for me and where I could rediscover who Joy is. At my very first DivaDance class, I left feeling confident, sexy, and proud of myself for getting out of my comfort zone. My goal is to bring these feelings to people in my area because everyone needs self-care!
