ViBE Dance and Fitness Studio is a high-quality, recreational dance and fitness studio offering dance classes for children and teens, all genders, all abilities, and all ages.
ViBE has qualified, trained, and “ViBE-certified” Dance Teachers and Assistants who enthusiastically share their smiles and passion for dance with their dancers. Owners and Artistic Directors, Marnie and Rena Schwartz, along with their talented and caring staff are professional, approachable, and dedicated. At all times, we invite you to share your input and suggestions. We listen and act on constructive feedback and appreciate client communication.
ViBE has a unique performance-based approach and non-competitive philosophy. ViBE strives to make every dancer to feel like a ‘star’. We remind dancers, no matter their age or skill level, that the focus is to ‘be the best that you can be’ not who’s the best. Our goal is to bring out the best in dancers using the vehicle of dance.
ViBE is an inclusive and equitable environment, which encourages ALL dancers to participate.
ViBE classes are challenging and enjoyable! With a focus on the ‘fun-factor’ and achieving the ‘S’ and ‘S’ – Sweat & Smile®, teachers encourage dancers of all ages and abilities to exercise, do their personal best, and have fun! The focus is on fun and good health – not medals!
ViBE builds CONFIDENCE, positive self-esteem, and body image while improving physical coordination, flexibility, strength, and wellness.
ViBE offers unique classes for TEENS ages 15-19+ that are ideal for experienced dancers and former competitive dancers who still want to dance without the pressures of competitive programs. These dancers will continue to feel challenged and learn a wide range of routines and dance steps while continuing to enhance their developed technique. We encourage everyone to dance throughout high school and beyond!
ViBE offers a unique Dance Teacher Assistant program for enthusiastic and committed TEENS. Assistants provide support in the dance class, and develop teaching, leadership, and professionalism skills under the tutelage of experienced dance teachers. Often, our ViBE dance teachers were former ViBE students and assistants.
ViBE offers opportunities to participate in exciting charitable or community events. ViBE also has a long-standing connection with the Raptors (Marnie and Rena danced with the Raptors’ Dance Pak), and each year, ViBE offers opportunities for students to dance at half-time shows.
ViBE is proud to add Camp ViBE to the programs offered at the studio! Camp ViBE offers PA Day Camp during the school year and a Summer Dance Camp in July and August. Camp ViBE welcomes girls and boys in JK to grade 8.
PA Days at Camp ViBE are active and fun-filled with dance, games, sports, obstacle courses, outdoor play, arts and crafts, beading, and more!
Summer at Camp ViBE gives campers the opportunity to dance all summer long! Campers can expect to experience a variety of dance disciplines and even create their own dance routines! Summer at Camp ViBE is a well-rounded program, including daily dance classes, camp-wide activities, obstacle courses, arts & crafts, cartwheeling, and more.
ViBE offers Cartwheel Clinics designed to give dancers the opportunity to improve and perfect their cartwheel skills. These clinics are geared for all skill levels and will help dancers work towards their goals and gain even more confidence with the guidance and encouragement of a ViBE teacher.
