Vivien comes from a background of figure skating and dabbling into different dances ranging from contemporary to tango. She started swing dancing at the University in Leeds and has not stopped since! Having been a musician as well as an athlete for many years, Vivien strongly values musicality with the aid of good technique. She is a lover of performance but will always prioritise social dancing and improvisation in her teaching. If you want to be entertained for an hour head over to her classes, she is a loud Italian with a lot of spare energy!
