Here we go, Season 14!! Just some tidbits to get you going. I am so grateful to you and registering for this season, for continuing to support my dream of providing a safe space for our dancers to grow, create, and find their passions.

1. Studios

There are 4 studios:

#1 (yellow/brown painting and VIBE mural inside)

#2- pink and blue walls

#3- purple studio

#4- purple/orange studio- with upstairs waiting area

When facing studio on Boxwood Rd, to the far LEFT is #1, then #2, #3 and #4.

 

2. Office Info
If you are not sure where to go, you can look at the schedule online as it shows the classes and what studios they are in.  As well, located in back parking lot is the office, where you will find my mom, Dale or me ;)  Office is open Monday to Thursday 3-8pm, Friday 3-7pm, Saturday 11am-3pm.  (OR.. email me and I am happy to help!)

AND.. there are some awesome moms that might be rocking these shirts “#badassvibemoms” and they will be out and about offering assistance!  PS.. if any others have a spare hour, please let me know!!

 

3.Parking- please utilize the parking lot as much as you can, it’s a one way drive through (drive in first drive on the Studio #4 side, and out the end of studio #1 side)

 

4. What to wear

VIBE is known as a chill studio, most classes just comfortable clothing, but I do ask to be appropriately covered (sweat pants, hoody’s, longer shorts, leggings, t shirts, tank tops)  This means no short shorts, jean shorts etc OR crop tops.  I appreciate dancers respecting this.

**Shoes- CLEAN INDOOR SHOES..ONLY…. You do not need to purchase new shoes, just pick a pair of sneakers that you can clean off and they can carry to studio

**For Jazz/Contemporary/Gymnastics- barefoot or half socks, and similar clothing- leggings, t shirts, bodysuits etc

**Ballet- ballet slippers- dancers choice of colors for bodysuits, tights and hair in bun or at least pulled off face.  Teacher can assist in guiding with how to do buns lol

 
5. For our younger dancers and new families:

For those dancers 7yrs and under, I respect it can be hard to leave your little one in the space. We really encourage that you drop off, make sure they are settled and then head out, as when you have people in room watching.. the dancers struggle to focus… period.  However, I do want you (the parent) to feel safe, so you are welcome to come in and check out the space before heading out. 

As well, dance is very hands on.. anyone that knows me, knows I live for my hugs.. but younger dancers (6yrs and under) might sit in my lap (or other teachers), hold hands and so on.

AND…. More towards our “Pop Tartz”, every now and then there might be what I call a “power struggle” lol, where a dancer might not want to listen and do what we are doing (shocking I know…haha).  This can result in myself having to pick up dancer and gently place to side of studio (I usually try to give them a task to focus on). Honestly, this does not happen often, but something to be aware of in general, dance is a hands-on activity and we want YOU the parent to be aware and comfortable with this, as well, we want the dancers to ALWAYS feel safe.

We offer parent watch weeks, more commonly known as “Parent Participation Week” throughout the year, usually 2, where we encourage you to come in watch OR even better…DANCE with your dancer!!!

6. You can find oodles of info here in regards to what to expect:

8. NEW CLASSES
Some exciting new classes this season that your dancer might want to check out

MONDAYS

**“Taster” with Anika Trimmer- not quite sure what style of dance is good for your dancer.. this is an awesome class.  Try Jazz, Hip Hop, Ballet, Contemporary and even some tap.

**“Waacking Tech” with Dominique Saab-Son- this is such a cool style of street dance, but we have never had the opportunity to have a specific class in the studio.  You should really check it out, especially for those dancers keen to build their repertoire

**“Open Tech with Jacksun”- remember that guy that maybe is a bit shorter in the duo “Funkanometry”? Well.. he’s running a tech class as he feels he has so much knowledge to share with the dancers in the studio.. Don’t sleep on this!

**Fridays “Gymnastics for dancers”- with Erica..  it’s BACK!! This is awesome for any dancer that wants to put tricks in their bag.  This class allows your dancer to learn the proper skills and techniques required.. before they put their “own spin” on the moves LOL

9. Adults!
Please check out the info on our website, lots of new adult options!!!
