We wanted to take a minute to say thank you to the entire Vibe staff for a fantastic year! When we switched to Vibe last summer we were simply looking for somewhere better than where we had been. We were in no way prepared for both the
sense of professionalism and camaraderie that we encountered throughout the year. From the directors to the instructors and the student helpers, we have never encountered anything but positivity. Our encounters with other parents have been equally positive. For the countless times we have heard parents praise others children, or seen them jump in to assist another child, never once have we heard a parent say a single negative word in regards to any child, situation or staff member. The absolute care and concern we witnessed this weekend from staff members, as well as the girls themselves was absolutely heartwarming. From the obvious passion the instructors have for their students and their sport, to
the big girls helping out the little ones, to parents dressing and prepping other people's children, we were absolutely blown away by the positivity and love that surrounded the entire event.
As a parent whose never danced, I always viewed dancing as an individual sport, but this weekend the dancers truly showed us that they are very much a united team all the way from the most advanced dancers down to the littlest girls. Their
talent was equally amazing and as a mom it was fascinating to watch my little dancer sit mesmerized throughout the entire show. After months of telling me she didn't ever want to try hip hop because they "dress like boys" she has been begging me nonstop since Sunday to sign her up because "boy clothes are ok because the dancing is way cool." That is the highest of compliments from my 5 yr. old fashionista!
My daughter can be a funny child...sometimes painfully shy and other times the wild little firecracker we see at home. After 3 yrs. at the same preschool with the same teachers she still hadn't completely come out of her shell. In soccer and gymnastics she is fairly reserved. While not quite the wild woman we have at home, Vibe is the one place that she seems most comfortable and like herself. We feared that her shyness would kick in Sunday and that she would freeze but she proved us wrong and excitedly informed us that dancing on the big stage was the "most awesomest thing ever!" Thank you all for providing such a warm and nurturing environment, for setting such an incredible example, and for providing
such good role models for all of our children. As parents we got far more than simply better than where we were when we made the switch to Vibe.
Thank you again from our family to the entire Vibe family.

When we created Vibe, we set out to deliver “exceptional teachers and peers in a positive and inspiring setting in order to maximize their confidence” to Gettysburg, Hanover, and surrounding areas. Judging by the rave reviews of our initial “not a recital” show on Sunday, along with top awards at competitions this past year, we have certainly proven we have delivered exceptional teachers! But, what is even more important than simply teaching the technical skills is the creation of a positive and inspiring setting for children to thrive in--a place they can go to let all of life’s stresses disappear. Below is a testimonial, which we’d like to share with all of you, validating that we—all of the Vibe family—are doing just that, as it is not just Vibe employees creating this environment, but each and every one of the parents and students, as well!
We again thank everyone for all the positive influences you all have on the students! Do you have your own story you'd like to share? Let us know, and we will gladly share it!
