+ WHY DANCE?
For starters, it is a lot of fun! Aside from fun, dancing has so much more to offer than just a good time. Exercise, stress relief, self-confidence, social poise, and a creative outlet are amongst the many benefits you can receive from dancing. We highly believe that Dance is the latest best stress relieving therapy! We also believe that Dance challenges children, teens, and adults to learn a new skill and expand their understanding of music and world cultures.
+ HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE ME TO BECOME A GOOD DANCER?
At the VIVA, we guarantee that you will quickly establish confidence with the basic steps of dancing. However, the longer you dance the better dancer you will become. As your dance education continues, you will engage in advanced steps and styling that will have you looking and feeling like the dancer you want to be!
+WHY ARE DANCE UNIFORMS MANDATORY FOR THE CHILDREN?
We believe that as our students dress the part, they dance the part! A student wearing a T-shirt to Ballet, Ballroom, Latin, etc. prevents them from feeling confident as well as looking professional. A positive change in behavior has already been noticed due to enforcing our uniform policy! Having our students wear their proper uniforms for specific dance classes creates a positive and deliberate framework focused on accomplishment.
+ WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE MY APPOINTMENT?
We request 24h notice on all appointments. If we have confirmed a lesson for you, we are turning away other requests for that day and time.
+ CAN I FOCUS ON MORE THAN ONE DANCE AT A TIME?
All of the dances at the VIVA are interrelated. It is just as easy to learn 3-4 dances as it is to learn 1-2. In most dance situations, you will need to know a variety of steps in a multitude of dances.
+ DO I NEED A DANCE PARTNER FOR BALLROOM AND LATIN?
Though a partner is recommended, it is not mandatory. There are always others in the class that may not have a partner as well. Our instructors will rotate partners and make sure everyone is able to practice what they have learned with a partner. Our instructors will also pair up with students to make sure that he or she feels comfortable with the moves taught.
