Johannah is the Founder and Director of Dance Revelation. She has trained and competed in Ballet, Jazz, Character, Hip Hop, Pointe, Tap and Lyrical.
“I am always learning and wanting to expand my education as an instructor and studio owner. I travel every few months to NYC to learn from some of the greatest teachers and choreographers! I also travel to various teacher conferences and conventions. I believe that learning from fellow teachers and dancers is the key to a bright education. I learn something new every day from the students and parents of Dance Revelation.
My passion for dance began at the age of 6. It took a few years for my parents to realize this passion was not just something that would come and go, but they eventually realized that dance was a part of who I was as a person and would be a part of me for the rest of my life. When my parents allowed me to explore my passion of dance, they found so much joy in watching me do what I love. As an adult, I can say I love what I do, and I love my job. I am very blessed to know each day I am working with such amazing staff members and students who all treasure the gift of dance.”
Dance Revelation feels that it is important as a child and adult to recognize the gift and passion one may have and use it! For Johannah, her calling was to dance and to train others to be the dancer they want to become. Our staff is excited to help foster each student’s passion for dance. One of our goals is to help our students discover the dancer within them! We hope you would consider joining Dance Revelation!

Bri has been dancing since she was just 3 years old! Since then her love for dance, specifically ballet, has grown every day. Brianna has danced at a few different studios, and joined the DR family in 2011. She was then accepted into the Ballet Conservatory in 2012 to continue classical training at a higher level. Fast forward to 2015, she performed the lead role in BDCR’s Swan Lake as Odette.
Bri is currently enrolled at Harrisburg Area Community College as a dental assisting major. However, she plans on keeping dance as a part of her life. One of her passions is to teach young girls and boys ballet technique. Since she learned most of her ballet technique from Miss Leah at DR, she truly believes that she can thoroughly express the value of forming a correct ballet foundation.
“I hope to positively impact every student I come in contact with, whether with a hug or a laugh or a smile. Dance has always been an escape for me. I love seeing others escape into the dance world where we are all friends and grow together.”
Nichole Liquori began dancing when she was two and half years old. In elementary and middle school, she was trained in ballet, jazz, and tap. While in high school she was apart of a local competition dance team that was focused in hip hop. She continued her dance education all through college taking multiple dance and modern classes as well as being an active member of two different school dance clubs. Nichole was adamant not to let her dance education cease and was grateful to further her dance passion by becoming an adult student here at Dance Revelations. This is now Nichole's 5th year with DRS and each year she enjoys learning more about the technique behind the different dance genres, so that she can share this knowledge with her students. Her greatest joy is being able to share her passion for dance with all her students, here at DRS and at the school where she teaches.
