Ignite Dance is owned by Bill and Jodi Theis, long-time dance parents who have loved watching their children grow through dance, and who value the self-confidence and friendships their children have gained along the way.  They purchased the studio in 2013, using their combined business and public relations experience to improve the studio’s offerings while maintaining a family-friendly environment and pricing. In 2014, they hired Krista Juderjahn, a professional dancer and dance teacher from Chicago who has local ties, to be director and put her stamp on the Ignite experience.  In 2017, they renovated a former body shop to create the current location of Ignite Dance.
