we "thrive" at VIREO
At VIREO, we believe that through encouragement, inspiration, and top-quality technical training, dancers are able to grow into well-rounded, self-confident, disciplined and hard-working individuals. In Latin, VIREO means to "thrive"; within the family of the studio, each dancer is encouraged and given the opportunity to flourish.
Dance is not only a form of artistic expression. The discipline, determination and passion learned is something that dancers will carry along into all aspects of life and future endeavours!
VIREO promises a positive, inspiring, and safe environment where every performing artist is accepted and encouraged to "thrive"!
