 πŸŒΉLa Vida Dance School🌹

​

in September 2010 to share our passion joy & love for Music & Dance with all our students & local Communities doing what we love & loving what we do as a TEAM.

 

What we believe as Dancers Performing Artists Entertainers or Musicians & Dance Teachers 

 

To us, learning dance is an activity that demands effort, energy, concentration, bringing happiness joy and igniting a passion or fire from within.

 

Dancing requires an ability to focus, a commitment with a positive attitude to learn a new skill over time.

 

Feel your dance your way work on your individual personal style for your OWN Shape Size & Physical attributes watch & learn from everybody but when  you dance you bring you, your personality, your individuality your life stories.

It is not just steps that you learn, it is your story, 

your life how you interpret the Steps and make it your own without losing YOU!

Your Uniqueness!!!
