About
VibeTribeyyc

Created in 2013 by Sean Butler, VibeTribeYYC was built with the intention to develop a high level dance education and training program for those in and around the Calgary area. VibeTribeYYC guides dancers to form deeper understandings of music, a soulful connection to movement,  and a growth mentality through classes, training, and choreographic pieces. An energetic and welcoming space where all dancers of differing ages and abilities can continue to build skills, entertain, and share positive vibes together!
