What to Expect
VidaDance performances are always interesting and fun. We believe dance should be easily understood, and performances should be a positive and inspiring. Our pieces are an eclectic blend of ballet, modern, jazz, tap, with ballroom dance influence. Themes range from fairies to finding home to rehearsal mishaps to beginning again and everything in between. We tailor our performances to meet your needs, and can even choreograph a new piece especially for your event. Check out our promo video on YouTube!
