Dance is a form of artistic expression, designed for performing. The ultimate goal of dance training is the performance! Until the dance student performs for a live audience, their training is incomplete. Many dance students will perform only once a year-on a stage in the recital. The Vibe is a group of more serious dancers who desire more than that once-a-year opportunity. The Vibe dancers LOVE to be on a stage! The performance company will provide you with more opportunities to be in the spotlight and share your talent with others.
Dance education encompasses far more than technique or the steps your children will learn. We believe the discipline of dance training gives young people a better understanding of commitment by offering them the chance to learn, experience the spirit of teamwork, and understand what hard work can accomplish. Our goal is to educate the minds, bodies, and souls of our students, to teach them the skills needed for a successful life, whether or not they stay involved in dance.
For us competition is an education. We consider participation in competitions not simply part of our student’s training as dancers; it’s also an important part of how we influence them as people. With the right focus, the experience gained in competition can be an excellent source of self-confidence.
Hitting that stage and doing the best they can is what it’s all about; whether they win—or which award they win—is secondary.
Are you looking for a competitive team opportunity that allows you to still have time for other activities? Or maybe you're just not sure if you can commit to the demands of a competition team. Then check out our newest team, Debut! We are so glad that we introduced this experience for the novice competitor! They had an awesome season!
