Kiona BellCelebrity Dancer
Kiona Bell moved to the Prescott area 10 years ago from Dallas/Ft. Worth. She lives and works in Prescott Valley and is currently a branch manager with Credit Union West. She is passionate about the development of adult and youth servant leaders in our community and as a result, Kiona is currently serving on the board of Prescott Area Leadership. She has participated in the advisory panel of the Prescott Area Youth Leadership Academy. Kiona has served on the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee with the Humboldt Unified School District. For the past three years, she has organized a team to participate in the Prescott Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Team up to Clean Up. Kiona has also volunteered for the following organizations and their events: YBBBS – Bowl for Kids Sake, Prescott United Methodist Church – Feed the Hungry, and the Prescott Salvation Army – Easter Carnival. When she is not Dancing for the Stars, Kiona enjoys gallivanting the countryside on her motorcycle with her friends and family. While Kiona typically prefers singing as her performance outlet, she is enthusiastic about the Boys & Girls Clubs and the positive impact this organization has on the youth in our community. Therefore, it was an easy decision when she was approached with this nomination to dance. Kiona’s biggest wish for the audience is that they enjoy the show and realize they have made the right decision when they vote for her and her dance partner, Patrick Wilcox.
Patrick moved to Arizona in 1984. He has owned and operated Landscaping by the Yard in Prescott for the last 23 years. Patrick specializes in landscape maintenance, landscape remodeling and irrigation services for commercial and residential customers. Patrick met his wife Karen in 2003 and they began their relationship dancing together. Patrick and Karen have been dancing ever since and have competed in regional and national across the United States winning many competitions. They both enjoy teaching private lessons and dancing in showcases throughout the state as well. In 2004 Patrick and Karen opened Prescott Ballroom to fulfill their goal of sharing and growing the ballroom dance community, something they truly enjoy.
