About Us

From the very beginning, the owner of Vivo Dancesport Center had the goal of introducing the beauty, grace and style that truly represents Ballroom and Latin American Dancing to his students. Starting in England, Alan Dixon, a former 3 times undefeated United Kingdom Ten Dance Champion, currently a United States national adjudicator and examiner, has more than 35 years of dance experience. It is this depth of knowledge, experience and a life-long love of Ballroom Dancing that he wanted to share with others; eventually leading him to open Vivo Dancesport Center.

From the very beginning, it was also a crystal clear objective to make Vivo a studio of high renown, a studio that was known throughout the dance community, both here in Los Angeles and throughout the world for its exceptional dancers. Vivo has risen above all competitors to become an instantly recognizable name in Ballroom and Latin Dancing. The current teaching staff has won countless Professional titles and some of the most noteworthy include the following:

U.S. National Professional Latin Finalists
Two British Open Professional Rising Star Champions
Two time "International Championships" Professional Rising Star Champion
Four U.S. Open Rising Star Champions
"International Championships" Professional Rising Star runner-up

Being within easy freeway reach of three counties, Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino, it has been the goal to serve the dance community with the very best that Ballroom and Latin Dancing can offer. With that goal in mind, everything was planned accordingly; from the full, competition-sized, Canadian maple dance floors, to the quality and continual education and examination of its instructors. At Vivo, there are incredibly priced group class packages that fit all schedules, levels and styles and therefore provide the perfect supplement to your private lessons. Another extremely important part of the dancer's development is their practice. Practice parties are run on a daily basis and therefore allow the dancers to choose the most convenient schedule. Practice parties are an incredibly low cost and effective way to improve. We all know that "Practice makes perfect!" and the parties give students and teachers an excellent chance to socialize and hone their skills at the same time.

All Vivo instructors are former competitors or are currently participating regularly in major Championships. This means that Vivo regularly invites the best coaches from the United States and around the world to work with the instructors. Alan believes that this ensures that Vivo teachers are up to date with the most recent developments in technique, style and choreography; Therefore, ensuring that Vivo can serve the students, on any level, from beginner to professional, in the best possible way. With those principles in place, Vivo Dancesport Center and its instructors has been the recipient of countless Scholarship awards, Championship awards, "Supreme" awards, "Top studio" awards and "Top Teacher" awards.
