It all started with a little girl and a dream…


At 4 years old, Katie began dancing at ‘Dancin’ on the Rim’ right here in Payson. By age 8 she was traveling to the valley 3 days a week for dance classes. Over the years Katie found a love and passion for teaching. When her family decided to move back to Payson she knew exactly what she wanted to do. “I was fortunate enough to be able to travel and receive some of the best training and experiences in dance that the state of Arizona could offer. I was beyond blessed, not everyone can afford to travel to large cities to receive elite training, and now, they don’t have to!” Katie moved back to Payson in 2017, bought Vibe Dance Academy, and now she provides that same elite training, passion, and experience with the community of Payson! Vibe dance has many years of growth ahead! Come be a part of their story!
