This Is How Our Story Began
Owners, Paul & Julianne Daniells, met while dancing in Arizona. They became fast friends, dance partners on the professional circuit, and fell in love along the way! Paul & Julianne married in 2016 and continued to grow their dancing & teaching business, DanceWise (founded 2015) until eventually opportunity came knocking Summer 2020 when they began work on their dream, a dance studio to call their own!
"We started DanceWise out of a love for dance & a passion for sharing the love of dance with as many people as possible to enrich their lives in a positive way! Our dream has always been to provide a beautiful, quality and welcoming environment where people can walk in the door, forget their worries, and just dance!"
What makes DanceWise unique is our particular approach to teaching & the dance industry in general. We aim to always be professional, yet fun & approachable! In additional to being certified dance professionals, both of us (Paul & Julianne) have extensive business experience – Paul has been in Management for 20+ years & Julianne has an MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU - in addition to over 60 years of combined dance experience. Paul trained in England for the majority of his dance career, while Julianne is a born & raised Arizonan.
