WWR Article Summary (tl;dr) Entrepreneur Mikaela Wills has made all the right moves when it comes to launching and expanding her dance company called “I Dance.” So much so, that she is expanding to a new location this fall to accommodate all of the growth.

When Mikaela Wills first opened up iDance Project in July 2010 in downtown Columbus, she said she was told several times she would fail. It was like a gut-punch.

“I think any entrepreneur feels like anything is a good idea until you get thrown into the situation and realize how tough it really is,” Wills recalled of when the studio first opened.

But she persevered. Almost nine years later, iDance has a few hundred students ranging in age from 18 months to adults, has won numerous coveted dance competition honors and built quite the reputation along the way.

As a result, Wills recently announced her decision to move the studio from its current location at 3409 21st St. to a bigger spot in the strip mall along West 23rd Street that already houses Sears Hometown Store, Goodwill and Super Buffet.

Her iDance Project is tentatively planning to open up shop in its future location on Nov. 2, and once it does, it will mark the second time in its history it has relocated to accommodate growth. The first move from downtown to 21st Street occurred about five years ago.
