Our story

The dream has always been to inspire our youth with confidence in themselves.

ultimate dance on the move

here to inspire, here to dance.

Ultimate Dance On the Move has been serving dancers in the West Suburbs of Chicago since June 2013. Ultimate Dance started when the owner Cheyanne Diaz wanted to make a difference in the dance community in her home town of Plano when she was just 17 years old. She had a passion for dance/teaching and saw a great opportunity to work with Ultimate Health and Fitness in Sandwich, IL to start the journey of her dance studio. A year and a half after opening, Cheyanne had the opportunity to attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa to expand her knowledge in entrepreneurship and to help grow the studio that she would soon return to. After learning so many new things about entrepreneurship and expanding her dance/yoga/fitness knowledge, Cheyanne returned to Illinois to expand her studio and mobile program. Ultimate Dance opened a pop-up dance studio in downtown Plano in September 2016 which has now expanded to a permanent location in January 2017.
