We dreamed of a place where people enjoyed dancing together.
We believe anyone can learn to dance—and that its benefits are much deeper than musicality and rhythm.
We’ve seen our students’ lives change because of dancing, from brand new dancers to those who had strong backgrounds in formal dance training—truly, our goal wasn’t just about developing skilled dancers, but even more about creating connections and relationships among people who loved to dance—no matter their skill level.
Our community is missing one thing … YOU!
With more than 35 years professional experience, VS Dance Club’s three signature programs encourage you to set goals, stay focused, and—most importantly—have fun!
We’ve seen that with dedicated time and our intentional plan, anyone can learn to dance—and we’ve got the award-winning instructors with the experience and know-how to teach you and take care of your needs
The VS Founders: Sarah & Vlad
Classic case of boy meets girl… with a twist.
The boy had training in International Latin & Standard dance and she was an American Rhythm & Smooth-trained dancer …
The dream of owning a studio was inevitable.
Sarah’s love of dance rooted deeply at a young age in ballet and jazz classes. While in college studying business, she took her first ballroom dancing class—and was hooked. She danced for more than 10 years in American Rhythm competition, training with some of the world’s finest coaches.
With awards like winning four Open Professional American Rhythm events, winning three professional American Rhythm Rising Stars events, and obtaining numerous finalist spots in open professional events in Canada and around the United States, Sarah started dreaming of what would come next … which included teaching and opening her own club.
Teaching came naturally—Sarah’s won multiple top teacher awards, and her students have won top student awards—and after Sarah met Vlad, well, you know the rest.
When Sarah’s not in the studio:
She loves international travel and fashion—plus, she’s learning Italian. Bellisima!
When Vlad was 4, his parents dragged him into dance class. After numerous chocolate bribes to keep him going Vlad persisted, and eventually his love of dance caught up to his love of sugar—both which remain strong today.
Vlad’s dance education includes training under some of the world’s greatest coaches, and more than 16 years representing both Ukraine and Canada in Latin dance competitions around the globe before meeting his bride, Sarah. He’s won more than 50 titles in his career.
Vlad is passionate about helping his students accomplish their goals — he is proud to share that his students have been Pro/Am finalists, Ukrainian Cup Latin winners, Ukrainian National Latin Winners, German Open Latin finalists and winners, and a Top Teacher award recipient.
When Vlad’s not in the studio:
You’ll likely find him enjoying a glass of wine, or studying for the WSET Level 3 Exam. Cheers!
Shiori moved from Japan to Canada when she was 16, and took her first dance class to meet new people—before she even spoke English! What started as a way to make new friends turned into a whirlwind love affair … with dance. She began competing, and after years of training and dedication, she became Canadian National Champion. .
Shiori loves to teach people, and is particularly great at making anyone feel comfortable on the dance floor!
When Shiori’s not in the studio:
She loves traveling and boating—and enjoying a delicious meal. (Japanese and Mexican cuisine are her favorites!)
