Future Stars- A parent assisted class where our 18-36 month old students will have the opportunity to come take a class to help work on learning to follow instructions and also build their large motor skills thru dance and tumbling exercises.  NEW... Future Stars will have the option to participate in our Holiday Showcase and Spring Recital if they would like a stage performance opportunity.  An adult will need to accompany our Future Stars performers on stage.

Twinkle Stars- A 30 minute introductory class for our 2.5 - 3.5 year old students where they will focus on working through parent/child separation, learning to take turns, and following instructions, all while building fine and large motor skills.  Twinkle stars combo students will perform one routine in our Holiday Showcase and one routine in our Spring Recital.

Performance Team & Company Dance Program


If you have the desire for your child to take their dance training beyond the recreational level, Viva has two programs that offer additional training along with competitive dance opportunities.  Our Performance Team and Company members commit 1-4 days a week to their training in all genres of dance and will attend competitions and/or conventions in addition to performing in our two recital performances each year.  Our goal is for our Performance Team and Company members to develop excellent  technical dance skills while building exceptional work ethic and teamwork skills so we can help them acquire life skills that will follow them thru every chapter of their teenage and adult years.  Teams/Groups are formed based on technical ability, performance quality, movement quality, and ability to learn and retain choreography.  Age and potential for growth are also considered as we form our Company groups each season.  If you would like additional information regarding our Performance Team or Company Program, please feel free to email Miss Nicci at vivadancecollc@gmail.com
