ABOUT ADC


Adam Kieffer
Owner at Adam's Dance Connection


My passion for the art of dance started In 2001.  Thanks to my then girlfriend Jessica, I answered an ad to become an Arthur Murray Dance Studio  instructor in Hamden, CT.  At the time, I would have no idea of the wonderful journey that was about to begin.  After an incredible career of learning, studying and earning three full certifications plus for the AM franchise, we returned to our native Dubuque, IA home in 2007, unsure of my future in dancing.

By 2008, I had landed a full time HVAC job, Jessica had become my wife and we started a family, leaving dance in the back of my mind.  In late 2009, the Dubuque area Chamber of Commerce contacted me about volunteering for a local Dancing with the Stars fundraising event.  Since then, I have been involved with multiple numbers for the show.  This has lead to winning judges choice for several years for my choreography, ultimately fueling my desire to teach the tri- states how to dance.  In September 2015, I brought my dream to fruition and  Adam's Dance Connection opened its doors!
