About DivaDance

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!

About DivaDance 1

Little Dreams That Turned Into Big Realities

The real inspiration for DivaDance started in a small town in Texas, in a bedroom filled with New Kids on the Block posters. Our CEO and "Head Diva," Jami Stigliano, began choreographing dance routines for herself and friends way back when Madonna, Mariah, Janet, and Paula Abdul were topping the charts. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, the former dance team captain took her passion for pop music to NYC, where (by day) she developed her career as a music industry executive at Jive Records, and (by night) she created DivaDance as an alternative to competitive dance studios targeting only those who were Broadway-bound.
Who knew that dance-filled-slumber parties, would eventually inspire something so special? Although still heavily involved and connected to some of the music industry’s biggest names, Jami is now dedicated to helping empower every adult across America, creating fulfilling and consistent jobs for choreographers and dance teachers, and helping women start and run their own business through our franchising opportunity.
“After years of traveling with recording artists across the globe, running album releases and campaigns, fighting to break new artists, producing video shoots and promo tours, and devoting my life 24:7 to helping pop stars become rich and famous- I made the decision in 2015 to DO MORE OF WHAT I LOVE and bring the more important mission of inspiring confidence and building community to adults across the country."
