Going into its 22nd year, VIBE Dance Competition continues to support and challenge the spirit of competition each year with a special panel of judges, unique teams from around the world, and a loyal audience.
Since its humble beginnings as a talent show, VIBE has grown to become one of the most prestigious and longest remaining competitions around the world. As always, VIBE will join forces with Culture Shock LA to support our community’s youth arts and dance programs and with The Kinjaz, because it’s just awesome to work with friends and share the passion.
VIBE has established itself as the first major dance competition of the year in Southern California. Fueled by its immense support for the dance community, VIBE continues to create an open, supportive, and friendly environment for its fans, new or old.
