Dance Through the Decades Workshops take students on a captivating journey through the history of dance, highlighting the distinct styles and trends that define each decade.

Our Approach to Dance Through the Decades Workshops


At VG Dance Workshops, we bring history to life through dance, providing students with hands-on experiences that engage their minds and bodies. Our skilled instructors guide students through the iconic dance moves and styles of each decade, incorporating historical context and cultural insights to deepen their understanding and appreciation.


Enhancing School Curriculums and Cultural Awareness

Dance Through the Decades Workshops complement school curriculums by providing students with opportunities for interdisciplinary learning and cultural enrichment. By exploring the music, fashion, and social movements of different decades, students develop a broader perspective of history and society while also honing their critical thinking and analytical skills.



We had the pleasure of Vivian visiting our school to deliver a multicultural week of workshops to our infant's school children, nursery to year two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Vivian was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the events and the styles of dancing. We were so impressed with Vivian, that we then booked another workshop in the same term. Vivian, upon his return, again was outstanding. The children were very lucky to have been taught by Vivian.
