“I love being part of Viva because dance can help turn friendships into family. I’ve danced with other local instructors, and the quality and dedication that goes into growing the dancers at Viva is beyond compare. I completely understand being nervous to start – I definitely was – but everyone welcomed me and helped to challenge and grow me as a dancer.”
