"My Daughter has been going to Vibe Dance Studio for over a year and we both love it.  I was looking for a low key, non pushy dance school with affordable fees and realistic expectations, and I found it at Vibe.  We love the friendly and approachable feeling and the easy going teachers. The teachers are always so happy to listen and my daughter is so excited after every class to show me what she's learnt.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Vibe to all of my friends!"

Miss Lauren is a nationally qualified dance teacher and assessor. She trained and taught under the RAD classical syllabus, FATD and CSTD Jazz and Tap and currently, ADV. Miss Lauren has 25yrs + dance training and studied and taught all styles. Her performance credentials saw her travel both interstate and overseas before she settled in Brisbane and opened Vibe Dance Studio in 2011.  Miss Lauren  just loves her Vibe Dance Family! Her strong commitment to the family orientated feel at the studio is what makes Vibe Dance the place students want to come back too and her commitment to excellence in dance education (both junior and tertiary level) ensures Vibe Dancers achieve their very best and are offered the best performance opportunities possible.

Miss Lauren dedicates her life to creating the right environment for her dancers (aka her children as she often refers to them). She knows each one by name as well as their parents name and any other little idiosyncrasies. Miss Lauren also often travels up and down the east coast to assess other studios and volunteers at eisteddfods from time to time. Its clear Miss Lauren is dedicated to her craft. However, when not at the studio, Miss Lauren loves spending time with her family.

FUN FACT: Miss Lauren’s weakness is definitely dark chocolate and red wine! 😉
