Competition Instructor & Receptionist
I have loved dancing from the moment I started as a little girl and it has remained a big part of my life ever since. I was on the drill team at my high school for 3 years, and then remained dancing for another 3 on Weber States Spirit Squad and absolutely loved it. I am a part of the Utah Dance Judges Association. I have taught and helped run after school dance programs in Davis County as well as helped with technique and choreography for local Drill Teams, and solo competitions. I have been trained in ballet, contemporary/lyrical, jazz, and hip hop, specializing in Jazz technique and love teaching ALL styles. I have been here at VIBE for 4 years and consider this studio my family. Growing up, my instructors were such a big influence on me and the dancer/person I am today and I strive to be the best type of influence for my students. Aside from teaching and dancing, I love spending time outdoors, traveling, and spending as much time with my husband and two kiddos as I can.
Dancing has always and will forever be a big part of my life. I have been dancing ever since I can remember and have been through countless trainings, classes and performances. Being part of competition teams throughout my life, as well as being a three year drill team member and captain, has taught me so much. I have learned a lot of leadership skills, technique and choreography that has made a big impact on my coaching abilities. I find so much joy in teaching young dancers dance skills as well as life lessons that they can bring with them wherever they go. I have been a competition and recital coach at Just Dance right from the beginning and plan on staying at this amazing studio for as long as I can!
Dance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve been dancing for 17 years and competing for 13. I’ve been teaching for six years and have loved every second of it. I’ve coached the recital girls and have loved watching them grow. I grew up dancing at this studio and it’s become a big part of my life. For the last two years, I attended Utah State University Eastern and was a member of the dance team and was a captain my second year. We won two Hip-Hop National Championships back to back and was trained in many different styles including; Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Contemporary, Modern, Ballet and Tap. Besides dance, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the lake, playing tennis and joining any dance party I can. I’m sad to be retiring from dancing myself, but I’m so grateful for all the little kids that I get to teach.

Dancing has always brought me joy in my life! I started dancing when I was 5 and was the president of Bonneville Highs drill team. I enjoyed helping my sister teach at her studio. What I love most about dance is watching an individual work hard at a goal and then seeing them accomplish it. I love all the life long lessons you can learn from dance. I am a mother to 3 beautiful girls. Gracie and Eden are my 4 year old twins and then Elizabeth is my sweet 9 month old. I have always enjoyed teaching my children and I am excited to teach yours!
Hi, my name is Prezley Potter! I graduated from Utah Valley University in Digital Marketing with a minor in Digital Media and Business Management. While attending Utah Valley University I was the captain of the Cheer Team. I loved my time there and it will always have a special place in my heart. Growing up I was always in some kind of competitive sport. I did soccer, dance, power tumbling, school cheer, and competitive cheerleading. I absolutely love competing! I have competed at Cheerleading Worlds and NCA College Nationals. There’s something magical about performing something you love in front of thousands of people. I have coached competitive cheer for the past 7 years. I think coaching is one of the most rewarding jobs. There's nothing like helping an athlete reach their goals. I recently found a new love for yoga. I have practiced yoga for 7 years. I specialize in Vinyasa and Acro/partner Yoga. I am a 500 Hour Registered Yoga Teacher. Yoga is amazing way to connect with your body and mind. I love being able to help assist people connecting with themselves through yoga.

Ballet & Tap Instructor
I was I’ve been dancing since I was two years old and started training in Ballet, tap, and jazz at 8 years old with a strict focus in ballet. I fell in love with the elegance and poise that came along with ballet and knew dance was something I had to do for the rest of my life! I started doing competitions when I was 14 and and won overall titles for my solos. After high school I went on to become a member of the Weber state dance team and realized I love hip hop! My team and I won the NDA D1 Hip Hop National Championship in April 2018. Without dance, I don’t know where I’d be in life and I want to instill the same discipline in my students that dance gave me.
