Rhianna Adams – Owner
Hi, I’m Rhianna – The owner/director of The Dance Project North, as well as one of the instructors. I was introduced to the art of dance at 8 years old, and as I grew, my passion for dance really took off! Thanks to my teachers at my home studio and mother who supported me in the pursuit of dance throughout my life, dance continues to fill my life with many, many adventures.
At sixteen, I spent an amazing summer at Perry Mansfield and was able to train under some amazing artists – This is where my true love for dance blossomed. Shortly after high school I started my professional career out as a Phoenix Suns Dancer. I went on to get my bachelors degree in Elementary Education, and when offered a teaching job, I realized my love for dance triumphed over everything else. I decided to pursue dance professionally in Los Angeles, training at the Edge Performing Arts and Debbie Reynolds Dance Studio. During this time, I was represented by Bloc agency for commercials, movies, musicals, and other fun opportunities. While pursuing all these avenues of dance, I was also able to travel & perform with Mosaic dance ministry, travel as a dancer with the magician Franz Harry, train in New York for a summer, and was featured in a couple infomercials!
In 2008 I moved back to Phoenix and married the love of my life, Josh Adams! In 2010, we welcomed our first child (a daughter!) and started The Dance Project in Peoria, AZ with my dear friend Dinah Foddrill. Nine years & two kids later, our lives brought us to Prescott Valley, AZ and I said goodbye to my dance family in Peoria, knowing I would always come back and visit. Dance once again found my heart in this beautiful town. I began teaching a handful of talented young dancers and am now thrilled to be opening another studio – The Dance Project North in Prescott Valley!
It has been such a blessing & honor to be a part of this community – I am so excited to see how The Dance Project North can impact and uplift these children. None of this would be possible without our amazing team of faculty. I am so grateful for them, their passion, and commitment… They truly are the best!
