Vibe Performing Arts "Big city training with a small town feel"
At Vibe Performing Arts we work to grow both our students as dancers and as people in a loving and supportive environment. We are a mid-sized studio offering a variety of styles of dance and several different paths a dancer can take, starting at age 3. What makes us different are two things. One, we have a large, excellent, professionally trained staff that are all in the top of their field. Second, we offer top tier training -- whether you take class 1 hour a week or 20. Every dancer is important to us regardless of how much time is spent at the studio. We encourage our dancers to have a life outside of dance so we allow for flexible schedules so that dancers can participate in outside activities. Unique to our area, we offer several different dance paths that you can choose from; Recreational classes, competition team, Hip Hop Crew, Ballet, and even tumbling! Vibe is the complete package whether you want to just dance for fun or aspire to become a professional dancer.
Dance Paths – several can be done simultaneously. 1. Recreational Classes – These classes are for any age dancer with any amount of experience that wants to take some classes for fun and learn about dance. Recreational dancers on average take 1-3 classes a week. All our recreational classes (other than technique only) will participate in our year end show. 2. Competition Team – The Pulse! – Anyone may audition to be a part of The Pulse – our competition team. The Pulse primarily focuses on jazz and lyrical, however dancers are also required to take 2 ballet classes per week and 1 hip hop at a minimum. There is flexibility within the Pulse with the number of classes that are required and that depends on your skill level. For example, our youngest ones take about 3 hours a week that is required. We have two mandatory studio competitions and 1 mandatory convention. All Pulse routines will also participate in our year end show. 3. Hip Hop Team – ENRAGE CREW! – We offer a separate competition and performance Hip Hop team. A dancer can be in ENRAGE alone or can also be in The Pulse. ENRAGE will compete at the same two studio competitions plus one more just for ENRAGE. ENRAGE also performs for organizations such as the NBA's Washington Wizards, University of Maryland, Mt. St. Mary’s, the York Revolution and other community events. ENRAGE practices on Saturday afternoons and requires that you take 2 hip hop classes per week. The team also performs in our year end show. 4. Ballet Path – KCB – Keystone Classical Ballet – is our professional ballet school, directed by Theresa Crawford, a world-renowned ballet teacher who has taught for over 40 years. KCB supports and trains our competition team as well as trains aspiring professional ballet dancers. Ballet is the foundation of all genres and correct ballet technique is the platform for dancers to excel in jazz and lyrical styles. Dancers can choose to study only ballet and take classes strictly through our KCB school. This would be for any students who are serious about ballet. We also offer an Honors Ballet Program by special invitation for students who are focused and are excelling in ballet. 5. Tumbling! We also offer amazing tumbling classes with our Tumbling Teacher, Reggie Thompson, a former Baltimore Ravens cheerleader!! He is so awesome with kids of all ages and is a master at teaching tumbling.
Vibe Performing Arts is an award-winning
dance studio, offering classes--each taught by specialized instructors-- in genres including: Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Tap, and Tumbling, among others. We serve the Gettysburg, Hanover, and Northern Maryland region, and are proud to be the only studio in Gettysburg with professional experience on regular faculty. Our unique style, while still remaining firmly grounded in classical technique, truly sets us apart from other local studios.
The studio culture is one of a positive learning environment for our students (ages 3 and up). We surround the students with exceptional teachers and peers in a positive and inspiring setting in order to maximize their confidence. Whether a student wants to be a casual dancer or a star on Broadway, we have a place for them! Students get top notch training, are taught proper technique, and learn cutting edge choreography without the ‘strictness’ found in some studios. We provide a flexible environment for students to participate in other activities outside of the arts, as we have students who are also on school athletic teams and other extra-curricular activities. We believe inspired dancers are happy dancers and happy students are our top priority!
We offer dance classes for a wide range of skill levels in: Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Tap, and Tumbling. Most students taking classes will perform in an end of year production to showcase what they have learned throughout the year. For the student who wants to have the opportunity to experience competitive dance competitions, perform in more public showcases, and receive additional training, we offer our auditioned Performance Company: "The Pulse".
Whether you want to just learn the basics as a recreational performer, or are thinking of a future in the dance industry, Vibe Performing Arts will provide what you want. Stop by for a visit and observe or even try a class, and see if you "Feel the Vibe!"
